2024 marks 60 years in Canada for the Japanese car company Toyota. In 1964, Toyota signed an agreement with Canadian Motor Industries Ltd for the distribution of Toyotas in the country. By 1965, 755 new Toyotas were sold in Canada. Sixty years later, the number of cars sold by Toyota is closer to around 200,000 per year.

While Toyota’s vehicles have been distributed in Canada since the 1960s, manufacturing did not start in Canada until 1988. Cars Toyota manufactures in Canada include the Lexus RX350, Lexus RX450h Hybrid, and RAV4.

Today, Toyota invests in developing its fleet of hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as developing more efficient gasoline engines and exploring fuel cell vehicle technology.
