Corollas in Cambridge
Toyota Corolla: For 25 years, Toyota’s most popular vehicle has been built in Canada
Cambridge - It has now been 25 years since Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada (TMMC) opened a plant in Cambridge and had its first car roll off the assembly line. Fittingly, that vehicle was a Corolla the world’s all-time top-seller, and Toyota’s most popular model.
Since then, TMMC has manufactured more than three million Corollas, with over 1.3 million of them sold in Canada.
Today, TMMC is gearing up to make more Canadian automobile manufacturing history, as the eleventh generation of the model is about to be produced in the Cambridge plant and sold to Canadians from coast to coast.
“The Corolla has always been and always will be synonymous with quality, durability, reliability and lasting value,” said Brian Krinock, President, TMMC. “Much of the credit for that has to go to the 7,000 Canadians who are team members at TMMC in Cambridge. They are passionate and dedicated people who take great pride in the exceptional products they create.”
The 2014 Corolla they’ll be manufacturing has been redesigned and reengineered. It offers a striking new design, a high-quality finish inside and out, new technology that’s almost unheard of in the compact sedan segment, and dynamic driving performance.
“Corolla has grown up with generations of Canadians, and with each redesign we seek to capture the imagination of these customers and create a remarkable experience,” said Mr. Krinock. “Our duty to Corolla owners and drivers defines our company. The Corolla is Toyota.”
