Toyota Motor Corporation is a Japanese automobile manufacturer. It was started by Kiichiro Toyoda in 1937 as an offshoot of his father’s company, “Toyota Industries,” and it was founded specifically to create automobiles. Years later, it was the third-largest automobile manufacturer in the world and produced its 200,000,000th vehicle by 2012. Toyota had a break above competition in develops such as their new safety system that alerts drivers of potential hazards and impending crashes, and will actually apply the brakes itself in certain situations if the driver fails to do so. The idea behind this, obviously, is to reduce the risk in driving and make vehicles safer. Toyota is utilizing real world traffic data and statistics to build the best system they can, which is great news for toyota auto transports who have to deal with perpetually bad drivers across the country.

Its fuel efficiency is surpassed by the Chevrolet Volt which was rated by the EPA in 2010 at 60 MPG.

It was introduced by Toyota in 1990 and is still in production today. Back in 1990 it was unveiled as a preview to the technologies that would be used in Toyota’s future minivans.
The Sienna is Toyota’s other large minivan. It is a newer model, first introduced in 1997. It was made to be produced along side the Camry, as they share an automobile platform. An automobile platform is a way for automakers to reduce costs and increase efficiency by having multiple models share the same basic engineering, assembly, and design along with common parts. With a common base in place, manufacturers can then make several unique models with minimal work. Before 2004 both the Sienna and Previa were physically smaller than their competitors but in this year they were made bigger.
