Toyota (NYSE:TM), creator of the Prius hybrid and the Mirai fuel cell vehicle, is committed to building vehicles for the way people live through our Toyota and Lexus brands. Over the past 60 years, we’ve built more than 30 million cars and trucks in North America, where we operate 14 manufacturing plants (10 in the U.S.) and directly employ more than 44,000 people (more than 34,000 in the U.S.). Our 1,800 North American dealerships (nearly 1,500 in the U.S.) sold nearly 2.6 million cars and trucks (2.45 million in the U.S.) in 2016 – and about 85 percent of all Toyota vehicles sold over the past 15 years are still on the road today.

As one of the world’s largest automakers, Toyota is in a unique position to shape the future of mobility. That’s why last fall, our parent company announced the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050, an ambitious set of six challenges to ultimately create a net positive impact on the planet. The challenges address environmental issues facing communities all around the world and range from eliminating – not just reducing – greenhouse gas emissions from our vehicles, operations and supply chain to water availability/quality to protecting nature. These ambitious goals will guide us in our efforts to create positive change and a more sustainable future.
