ERLANGER, Ky. (December 15, 2016) - Hundreds of thousands of jobs. Billions of dollars in payroll.  That is just part of the impact Toyota has on the U.S. economy.  A new study released today by the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) estimates the employment and economic contribution of Toyota Motor North America's operations and activities to the United States economy.  CAR's analysis found that Toyota has a total employment impact of 470,100 jobs, $32.3 billion in private non-farm payroll (0.35 percent of total U.S. private compensation) that results in $23.6 billion in net disposable income for individuals.  Each Toyota job creates employment for 6.1 others at suppliers or manufacturing support companies.

Cars.com Names Toyota Camry as Most American-Made, Again!

Sienna Takes Number Two Spot in Annual American-Made Index
 
June 29, 2015
ERLANGER, Ky., June 29, 2015 - The results are in, and Cars.com has named two Toyota models as most American-Made.
 
The Toyota Camry and the Toyota Sienna have claimed the top two spots, respectively, in the annual Cars.com American-Made Index. This marks Toyota's return to the American-Made pinnacle for the first time in three years and the fifth time overall that Camry has been ranked number one on the index.
 
According to Cars.com, the "American-Made Index rates vehicles built and bought in the United States. Factors include the percentage of parts considered "domestic" under federal regulations, whether the car is assembled in the U.S. and U.S. sales. Models with domestic-parts content ratings below 75 percent are disqualified, as well as models built exclusively outside the U.S. or models soon to be discontinued without a U.S.-built successor."
 
"These results are a testament to Toyota's continued investment and growth in the United States," said Toyota North America CEO Jim Lentz, who also serves as President of Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing, North America, Inc. "We are strengthening our commitments to American manufacturing so we can better satisfy the needs of our customers for decades to come."
 
The Toyota Camry, America's best-selling car for 13 consecutive years, comes out of Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc. (TMMK) in Georgetown, Ky. alongside the Camry Hybrid, Avalon and Avalon Hybrid. TMMK is Toyota's largest manufacturing facility in North America, which also builds engines and employs more than 7,500. The plant built its 10-millionth vehicle in 2014 and will begin adding the Lexus ES to its lines this fall, the first Lexus to be manufactured in the United States. The addition of Lexus is the hallmark of a $360 million investment in the plant that also adds 750 new jobs.
 
The Sienna is assembled in Princeton, Ind. at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana, Inc. (TMMI) by a team of 5,000. The plant also produces the Sequoia and Highlander/Highlander Hybrid. Toyota is investing $100 million in TMMI to boost Highlander production, adding 30,000 units per year and 300 jobs by summer 2016.
 
Much of the design and engineering of both Camry and Sienna took place in the United States at Calty Design Research, Inc. and Toyota Technical Center (TTC), respectively. Calty is headquartered in Newport Beach, Calif., with a production design studio in Ann Arbor, Mich., and TTC is based in York Township, Mich. Camry and Sienna both have American chief engineers.
 
Toyota has 10 manufacturing facilities in the United States.

KBB.com research finds Toyota tops latest brand loyalty study

KBB.com research finds Toyota tops latest brand loyalty study

Posted Today 3:30 PM

Newly released data from the Market Intelligence wing Kelley Blue Book's www.kbb.com showed that Toyota moved into the number one spot in consumer brand loyalty ratings for the fourth quarter of 2011. It marked the first time since the third quarter of 2010 that Toyota had claimed that prime position. Toyota's brand shopping loyalty was at 50.6 percent, a 2.7 percentage point jump from Q3 2011, with previous leader Hyundai close behind at 50.2 percent. Ford, which moved to the third position from fifth place in the preceding quarter, is at 47.1 percent brand loyalty. Rounding out the top five spots are Kia while carries on in fourth spot from the previous quarter at 46.5 percent and Honda, which follows with 46.4 percent. Positions six through 10 in the KBB.com automotive brand loyalty study were held by Subaru, Chevrolet Lexus, Audi and Smart, in that order.  

In commenting on the underlying reasons for Toyota's move back to first place in this critical area, Akshay Anand, market intelligence Web analyst for Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com noted: "Hyundai was number one in loyalty for the past two quarters thanks to its strong redesigns, attractive value and the struggles of the Japanese brands with safety perception and supply issues. However, Toyota has done a laudable job overcoming these issues, introducing programs such as 'Toyota Care,' while getting its supply back online. The redesign of its flagship, the 2012 Toyota Camry also helped drive interest to the brand and retain owners."

"All in all, there are positive trends for automakers," said Anand. "Traditional leaders like Toyota are leaving the problems in the past and looking toward bright futures, while new players such as Hyundai, Kia and Audi remain forces to be reckoned with in the American automotive industry."

Kelley Blue Book Market Intelligence examines brand loyalty while consumers are still in the shopping phase.  For this analysis, loyalty is defined as owners of the brand who are currently shopping the same brand for their next vehicle.  This includes data from consumers who view a trade-in page or private party page in addition to a new-car page on Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com.

Toyota Again the 'Most Admired' Motor Vehicle Company in FORTUNE's Study

Automaker earns #28 spot in "World's Most Admired Companies" list
February 19, 2016
Plano, Texas (Feb. 19, 2016) - Toyota was once again named the top motor vehicle company inFortune Magazine's annual list of the "World's Most Admired Companies." Toyota is also ranked at #28 overall out of all companies surveyed and was in the top ten in both talent and running a global business.

The "World's Most Admired Companies" survey measures nine attributes considered critical to a company's global success, including quality of management, social responsibility, people management and global competitiveness, among others. Toyota ranked No.1 across all categories in the motor vehicles sector. The list, widely considered to be the definitive report card on corporate reputation, is based on company surveys and peer ratings from senior executives, directors and analysts.

"Toyota is honored to once again be recognized as a most admired company," said Jim Lentz, Toyota Motor North America chief executive officer. "All of our team members and partners worldwide contribute to enhancing Toyota's reputation by creating the future of mobility and contributing to a better society through safer, greener, and more fun driving experiences. This recognition is a reflection of their dedication to continuous improvement and exceeding customers' expectations."

The full list appears in the magazine's March issue, available now on Fortune's website atfortune.com/WMAC and on newsstands February 22.


FORTUNE's "World's Most Admired Companies" Methodology
Korn Ferry Hay Group started with approximately 1,500 companies with revenues of $10 billion or more, then selected the 15 largest for each international industry and the 10 largest for each U.S. industry, surveying a total of 652 companies from 30 countries.

To arrive at the top 50 Most Admired Companies overall, Korn Ferry Hay Group asked 4,000 executives, directors, and securities analysts to select the 10 companies they admired most. They chose from a list made up of the companies that ranked in the top 25% in last year's surveys, plus those that finished in the top 20% of their industry. Anyone could vote for any company in any industry. To create the 54 industry lists, participants were asked to rate companies in their own industry on nine criteria.
