2017 marks a critically important year for Toyota Australia – it will be our last year of automotive manufacturing.
Although this year will undoubtedly be an emotional one for all our employees, I cannot help but feel incredibly buoyed by our achievements.
For the 14th consecutive year we finished 2016 as the top selling automotive company in Australia, with HiLux and Corolla taking out the number one and two sales positions, respectively. Lexus also hit a new record, selling more vehicles in 2016 than ever before.
I cannot express enough how proud I am of what our employees have contributed across all areas of our company. Despite the closure of our manufacturing operations, the achievements of our employees will ensure that Toyota Australia continues to hold an incredibly strong position in the Australian market.
President, Toyota Australia
