A Million and Counting Toyota Texas Produces One Millionth Truck

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (September 18, 2013) – It's been said that the
stars at night are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas.

However, today in San Antonio, Toyota trucks are shining bright.

This morning, the 2,800 team members at Toyota Texas, on the city's
South Side, celebrated the milestone of assembling the plant's one
millionth truck – a Sunset Bronze Mica colored, 1794 Edition Tundra -
with one thing in mind: satisfied customers.

"We are grateful for our loyal customers across North America who
tell us they love driving Texas-built Tacomas and Tundras," said
Chris Nielsen, president of Toyota Texas. "It makes me incredibly
proud of our team members and 21 on-site suppliers every time I see
one of our trucks on the road knowing that safety and quality are
built into every one of them."

Toyota Texas produces the Tacoma and Tundra trucks and will celebrate
its 10 year anniversary since groundbreaking this fall. The new 1794
Edition Tundra is a tribute to the ranch, founded in 1794, on which
the truck plant is located.

Some notable facts and stats about Toyota Texas and the one millionth

Alamo to Honolulu, Hawaii.

-V6 and V8 engines for all Tacomas and Tundras are manufactured at
Toyota's Huntsville, Ala., engine plant; all transmissions are
manufactured in Durham, N.C.
-Production at the plant began in October 2006 with the Tundra. Tacoma
production was added in the summer of 2010.
-21 on-site suppliers, who employ 2,900, have had a big hand in
ensuring that quality, durability and reliability are built into every
