World 2000-2008: Corolla continues to shine
The Toyota Corolla continues to deliver outstanding worldwide production and sales numbers over the period, passing the million mark a few times. I have no official sales or production data here, so if you do please get in touch!
Two different generations of the Corolla launched during this time: the ninth generation appeared in November 2000 in Japan and was released across the world in 2001, except for the US spec released in 2002. At that time, the worldwide and US specs were very different models. This all changed in October 2006 when Toyota launched the tenth generation Corolla in Japan. By the time it launched in the US in January 2008, all new Corollas were the same model everywhere around the world.
The Corolla performed extremely well in the USA over the period, with 300,000+ yearly sales from 2003 onwards and peaking at 386,000 units in 2006.
