Three years later, the very first passenger car was produced that was sold under the name Toyota AA. Toyota was operating very successful until the beginning of World War II. Just like in any other post-war crippled economy, Japan couldn’t help Toyota in terms of barriers to entry and more freedom in foreign exchange.

But after Japan joined the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade things were looking better and in 1965 Japan legalized imports of foreign cars, making competition more fierce for Toyota. In the late 1980′s, company president Shoichiro Toyoda, made a revolutionary approach in running the company as he succeeded to enter US market and compete with domestic giants like General Motors throughout great Toyota car service. His strategy was based on public relations and overcoming social and cultural barriers.
