oyota’s impressive production figures of 7.27 million vehicles in 2020 alone make it the most significant global manufacturer, with its nearest rival lagging some 1.86 million cars behind. Founded back in 1937, Toyota’s formidable presence is particularly strong not only in Japan and the US but also Europe and China’s growing market. The company has a rich history rooted in motor racing and more recently they have set their sights on developing advanced self-charging hybrid powertrains which have been implemented into iconic models such as the Prius and CH-R. Additionally, Toyota is connected to different subsidiaries including Lexus, Daihatsu, and what used to be Scion – a name better known for being prominent within the American market.

    Toyota In Motorsport

    Over the last few decades, Toyota has been steadily forging a name for itself in motorsport that rivals the best of its competitors. Under the acronym TGR (Toyota Gazoo Racing), Toyota has been sweeping international endurance and rally events, accumulating an impressive track record of accolades. TGR won the World Endurance Championships three times in a row between 2016 and 2018, claiming both the Constructors and Drivers Championship on each occasion. Similarly, impressive results were also achieved in rallying, with two Group A championship titles in 1993 and 1994, two modern WRC championships in 1999 and 2018, and back-to-back drivers titles in 2019 and 2020 respectively. Toyota is headed towards becoming one of the top organisations in motorsports worldwide.

    The Toyota marque briefly featured on the Formula One circuit between 2002 and 2009 and made an impression with thirteen podiums to their name. Throughout this period, the team did not lack talent. Notable drivers that had seats with Toyota included Ralf Schumacher, Olivier Panis, Timo Glock, and Jarno Trulli who achieved a personal milestone – as well as that of the team – when he placed second in the 2005 Malaysian Grand Prix, resulting in Toyota’s first ever podium spot. This season stands out in many people’s memories as one of Toyota’s successes in Formula One and one which enabled them to leave a lasting mark on this competitive sport.

    Toyota’s self-charging hybrid units

    Toyota was one of the first car manufacturers to jump on board the hybrid movement, debuting their flagship model the Prius in 1997. The Prius has become the world’s top-selling hybrid car, but it does not enjoy as great popularity in the UK. Nonetheless, Toyota has implemented self-charging hybrid technology in almost all of its models released since 1997 – from the Yaris hatchback to their popular RAV4 SUV. In some cases, this also included a revival of previously discontinued models such as the Corolla.
