Toyota Global Vision

The business vision and guiding principles that define us

Toyota will lead the way to the future of mobility, enriching lives around the world with the safest and most responsible ways of moving people. Through our commitment to quality, constant innovation and respect for the planet, we aim to exceed expectations and be rewarded with a smile.

Tree concept

Trees are naturally strong — they’re useful, long-lasting, and continue to grow for hundreds of years. Our principles are like tree-roots, because everything we do is rooted in our beliefs. From there, vast and secure roots support the great tree-trunk — the strength and stability of Toyota. Branches lead to the twelve fruits of our vision, with the tree supporting everything — a metaphor for how we pull together to achieve success. And the tree flourishes in its environment; a place full of people — Toyota customers around the world.
