| Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) announces the launch in Japan today of the redesigned 'Corolla Axio' sedan and ''Corolla Fielder'*1 station wagon. The vehicles will be sold across Japan through 'Toyota Corolla' dealers.
Since its debut in 1966, the Corolla has been designed to prioritize peace of mind, practicality, and ease of use with the aim of creating value that adapts to the times. The Corolla has become a favorite of consumers around the world, with cumulative global sales exceeding 39 million vehicles*2, making it the world's best-selling vehicle.
The redesign of the Corolla Axio and Corolla Fielder sought a return to the Corolla's origins. Both vehicles were completely revamped to minimize body size while maintaining the ability to safely and comfortably transport four adults over long distances, thereby achieving a perfect fit for compact cars in the Japanese market.
The Corolla Axio and Corolla Fielder are manufactured for the Japanese market at Central Motor Co., Ltd.'s cutting-edge Miyagi Plant in the Tohoku region, which began operations last year. TMC has positioned this region as its third domestic production base alongside Chubu and Kyushu and will establish a new production subsidiary, Toyota Motor East Japan, Inc.*3, on July 1 to serve as a comprehensive vehicle manufacturer specializing in compact cars, with the ability to perform all functions from vehicle planning and development to production.
