Auto brands based in Japan

The Land of the Rising Sun is famous for its high quality cars, which, due to their quality and reliability, are among the best in the world. These auto brands include:

  • Toyota;
  • Nissan;
  • Honda;
  • Mazda;
  • Mitsubishi;
  • Acura;
  • Lexus;
  • Infinity;
  • Subaru.

The most famous brand in the world is Toyota. This Japanese auto company has been the leader in terms of the number of cars sold in the world in recent years. Such an achievement became possible due to the special policy of the manufacturer within the company and the special requirements regarding the quality of spare parts and assembly of machines. Also an important factor in the success of Toyota is the marketing tactics for pricing.

The company was founded in 1937 in Toyota, Aichi Prefecture by Kiichiro Toyoda. Kiichiro, with the help of his father, created an enterprise that eventually became great. In the late 80s of the 20th century, the corporation created the legendary Lexus brand. This premium brand is becoming the main competitor of reputable German cars.

Mazda Corporation is one of the oldest factories in the Land of the Rising Sun. At the dawn of the automobile industry, it was founded in Hiroshima in 1920 and was engaged in the production of cork products. But later she launched the production of cars. In the 60s, the plant produced its first car with a rotary engine. After that, the company began to be associated with the release of fast cars.

The global auto giant Nissan is one of the largest manufacturers in the world. Today it is the leader in the production of electric cars. The corporation also has two major brands - Infiniti and Datsun.

Founded by the talented engineer Soichiro Honda in 1948, the Honda auto concern has achieved worldwide success in car sales. This brand of car could be found in auto competitions of any level. The plant also produces the premium brand Acura.

One of the oldest auto giants in Japan is Mitsubishi, it was in the early 1870s. However, the release of the first car came in 1917. In addition, the company was engaged in the production of industrial equipment, engines and aircraft. There were different situations on its development path, but it overcame all difficulties and today continues to produce high-quality vehicles. Since the beginning of the century, the corporation has been cooperating with Daimler-Chrysler.

A Brief History of the Formation of the Japanese Automotive Industry

Despite the fact that the Japanese auto industry at the beginning of the 20th century made many attempts to create cars, nevertheless, a real world breakthrough in their mass production began only in the middle of the last century. It is interesting that in the 20s of the same century, according to statistics, there were only about 18 thousand cars in the country, and bicycles - up to 3.7 million pieces, rickshaws - up to 105 thousand and carts - up to 374 thousand vehicles .

If you take a brief digression into the history of the land of the rising sun, you will find that it was not technically developed 100 years ago. The 1930s were marked by nationalization in the country. All companies in the country became the property of the state, which affected production.

Later, after the war, the Japanese auto industry was practically destroyed. Rapid growth began in 1950 at the same time as the war in Korea. Factories began to carry out military orders and make deliveries of cars for American troops.

The leaders in deliveries were Nissan, Isuzu and, of course, Toyota. In parallel with this, consumer demand for cars began to grow. A state program was introduced in the country, according to which American cars were accepted for restoration. Later, spare parts began to be produced for them, and even later, manufacturers began to produce their own car models.

Iconic cars of Japanese manufacturers

Japanese automakers are famous in the global automotive market for their iconic car models. Thus, the world-famous Toyota Crown model became a breakthrough in the Japanese automobile industry. It was equipped with an overhead valve engine with a 2-chamber carburetor. The corporation still produces this car to this day.

The legendary Eclipse model from Mitsubishi appeared in 1989. The name was given to her in honor of the same legendary racehorse, which did not know defeat. The most sensational model was released in 1995, which had a front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive transmission.

Also one of the iconic cars was the Honda Civic. The fifth and sixth generation of these machines have the highest reliability indicators. They are popular to this day.
The cosmic design of the second-generation Nissan 300ZX was well received by many. This sports car was very popular until 2000.

The premium segment of Japanese car factories is also known all over the world. These are more expensive luxury brands that were created in the late 80s and early 90s in the last century. The Toyota concern produces the famous Lexus, which is presented as a luxury car brand. It competes on par with Honda's Acura and Nissan's Infiniti. These sub-brands of the premium segment were designed to compete with high-end American cars.

The Japanese auto industry is one of the world's examples of how success can be achieved in a minimum period of time through hard work, intelligent implementation of innovative technologies and patience. Today, Japanese cars are considered one of the highest quality and most attractive in the world.
