Toyota Motor Credit Corporation Celebrates 40th Anniversary

PLANO, Texas (Oct. 3, 2022) – When thinking of 1982, bright neon clothes, video arcades, early personal computers, VCRs and lively pop music might spring to mind. In this environment, perhaps even wearing iconic ’80s outfits and listening to mixtapes, seven Toyota team members began planning a new venture. They were tasked with helping Toyota dealers finance their operations and enabling customers to purchase Toyota vehicles. In October 1982, these seven reached a milestone by establishing the Toyota Motor Credit Corporation (TMCC). At the time, they couldn’t possibly have known that their tiny operation would grow to be one of the largest financial institutions in the United States — that today celebrates 40 years of growth and success.
