Toyota to Recall 280,663 Vehicles for Software Update

History of Toyota

Toyota’s origins trace back to the Japanese weaving industry when Sakichi Toyoda invented the world’s first automatic loom. This led to the establishment of the Toyoda Spinning and Weaving Company in 1918. The principle of equipment stopping automatically and highlighting issues immediately (jidoka) is still pivotal to the Toyota Production System. The company’s journey continued with the launch of its first passenger car, the Model AA, in 1936, and the establishment of Toyota Motor Company in 1937. Toyota’s global expansion started in 1959 in Brazil, and the company now manufactures vehicles and components under the Toyota and Lexus brands worldwide.
