Toyota Announces 50 Million Corollas Sold

Big milestone reached by Corolla

  • Compact car the best selling nameplate in the world

  • Offered in more than 150 countries with more than a dozen drivelines


More than 50 years after the brand started building what would become its most iconic model, Toyota has hit a milestone. The automaker has just announced that last month, Toyota sold the 50 millionth Corolla.

The Toyota Corolla was launched in 1966, hitting the market in Canada three years later. Now in its 12th generation, the car has grown and changed significantly, but its popularity has not diminished.

The figures make the Corolla by far the best-selling nameplate in the world. The only vehicle that comes close is the Ford F-Series pickup, which is somewhere in the range of 40-45 million units.

In Canada, Toyota has sold more than 1.6 million Corolla models, making it a top-seller here, as well. Globally, a Corolla is being sold approximately every 28 seconds, helping it rack up more than a million sales each year. Corolla is built at 12 factories around the world, including the Takaoka plant where the model was first built back in 1966. It is currently sold in more than 150 countries.

Toyota includes the Matrix in its sales figures; the upcoming Corolla Cross crossover, sold already in other markets, is also included. It shows the variety of models Toyota has built with the Corolla badge over the years. The current car is available with 13 different engines including a hybrid model, with significant modifications for different regions and markets.
