Toyota's success story

Sakichi Toyoda had his company since 1933 called Toyoda Automatic Loom. His son Kiichiro decided to change Toyoda's name to Toyota just because of the try that formed the da [だ] and added 2 more dashes [とよだ = 10].

Both words are written with the characters [豊田], but Toyota [とよた] is left with 8 dashes, which is considered a lucky number. And what a lucky company! Both for her and for consumers.

Around the year 1934 the company produced its first 6-cylinder engine named Type A, thus using it in its first prototype of a passenger car.
