Toyota’s subsidiary in South Africa celebrated last week its 1 millionth Corolla model produced at the company’s Prospecton Plant in Durban.
The milestone was achieved with a white Toyota Corolla that exited the line on 20th November also marking six years of successful production.

“It is very symbolic that the Corolla reaches this milestone now,” President and CEO of Toyota South Africa Motors Dr Johan van Zyl said. “It not only celebrates a very successful production run for the tenth generation world’s favourite car, but it heralds the introduction of the new Corolla in 2014.”

The Corolla nameplate was introduced in South Africa in 1975 and soon became the region’s favorite family vehicle and due to the fact that it was produced with both left or right-hand-drive, the models were also well exported.

The 1 millionth Corolla will be showcased in Toyota’s museum at the Sales and Marketing Head Office in Sandton.
