No matter how you get there (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division,), 25,000,000 is an extremely large number. Can you imagine having 25 million of something? How about $25 million? Maybe you are one of those animal people and are thinking of 25 million pets. Perhaps you’re secretly five years old and are dreaming of 25 million pieces of candy. However you want to slice it, 25 million of anything is more than enough, unless you are talking about the number of Toyotas built in North America.
At a Toyota plant in Georgetown, Kentucky, North America’s 25 millionth Toyota recently rolled off of the line and out the door on its way to another happy customer. The vehicle, an all-new, 2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid, was greeted by University of Kentucky’s Men’s Basketball Coach John Calipari. The new Avalon is the first car designed solely by American engineers in Ann Arbor, Michigan. So, not only does the 25 millionth vehicle represent a huge step for North American manufacturing, but also for Toyota’s development, design, and production in North America.
Everyone in America always enjoys hearing about successful ventures that employ thousands of Americans, especially in times of a recession. With the Camry being designated as the best-selling vehicle in the U.S., and the Sienna becoming the best-selling minivan, Toyota has solidified its place in American culture, and the company continues to provide Americans with reasons to buy its vehicles.
The future of Toyota in North America is bright, with more vehicles being designed and produced here. Who knows? Maybe the 50 millionth vehicle is not too far away, and after that 75, and then 100. The sky’s the limit for Toyota and North America.
