Toyota – As the largest of all Japanese automakers, Toyota ranks only second to General Motors in global production. Toyota vehicles were first introduced to the North American market in the 1960s and were, at the time, widely panned by critics as being too small and inferior in quality. By the late 1970s, Toyota quality levels began to exceed the industry standard. Today, some consider Toyota the benchmark by which all car lines are judged; the company’s Lexus line of luxury vehicles and Scion brand of youth oriented vehicles are also leaders in their respective classes.

(16 Mar 2017) LEAD IN: A car should be a reflection of the human dream to fly - that's according to Nissan's new design chief. Alfonso Albaisa draws upon elements of the cultures of Japan, America and Cuba in concocting car designs with a flair that critics say once was lacking at Japanese automakers, but now is thriving as they globalise. The Cuban-American was promoted this week to head design at Nissan Motor Co. as a senior vice president. STORYLINE: Alfonso Albaisa's promotion follows his appointment last year as the Japanese automaker's design director for Infiniti after working on the luxury brand's Q30 and award-winning Q60 models. Car makers are increasingly focusing on design to woo customers in an industry where high performance, safety and mileage are largely high quality across the board. The Infiniti Q50, which debuted at the Geneva International Motor Show this month, showcased a stylish interior with hand-worked materials like genuine-looking wood dashboard trims. At the Nissan Technical Center on the outskirts of Tokyo, Albaisa speaks lovingly of that dedication to craftsmanship, what the Japanese call "monozukuri" whilst pouring over an Infiniti QX Sport Inspiration. "This interior is actually quite cool. This is so much, for me, this inside is Japanese, in the sense of - like if you see this part here - these cuts. My Japanese designers were working with this leather that's quite thick. It's saddle leather. And the saddle leather is wonderful it has a smoothness and a sheen that is quite beautiful, but it is frustrating in it won't bend - only simple bends. And, but in these areas, the bend had to be much tighter. And so the designers started slicing the leather and finding patterns where the slice allowed them to fold it into a sharper bend. And as a result, though, it has this kind of beautiful chaos, but the chaos has a harmony to it. I think this is Japanese. And all these very delicate edges that are painted so the edge of the very thick leather is hand-painted. This kind of stuff to me is so beautifully Japanese, but it's also quite visual so there is a sense of Western," he says. The 52-year-old graduate of the Pratt Institute joined Yokohama-based Nissan in the U.S. in 1988, a decade before it forged an alliance with French automaker Renault. Partly due to that tie-up - its chairman is Brazilian-born Frenchman Carlos Ghosn - Nissan's ranks are more diverse than many Japanese companies: half its top 10 executives are non-Japanese, compared to about a fifth at rival Toyota Motor Corp. But Albaisa's Japan connection started much earlier: growing up he was exposed to Japanese artists and architects like Isamu Noguchi and Kenzo Tange by his father, an architect who moved to Miami after the Cuban revolution of the 1950s. "Japanese culture is not boring. Japanese culture is beautiful. It's innovative. It's thoughtful, inward-looking, outward-acting, and we have to make a car like that. We have to make cars like that. If that is perceived as boring, then we are not doing correctly, so my job one is to make Japanese cars reflect the beauty and innovation of Japan," he says. The Cuban-American says Japanese artworks, his love for his Cuban roots and the muscles of a cheetah are among the East and West influences at the heart of his sometimes whimsically poetic approach. "We dream. We dream of more than what our body can give us and the car is that. OK Yes, we need to go to shopping, yes we need to go to school and we use the car for that. But I think it's a reflection of our dream to fly, to move," he says. Albaisa shipped a scarlet Infiniti Q60S sedan to Cuba for a visit last year, to be filmed on its potholed but picturesque streets for coverage by Fortune magazine.

Japanese Automaker Toyota Reports Record Earnings Amy Bickers Tokyo 07 Nov 2003, 14:31 UTC Japan's largest automaker reports record earnings while the country's top cosmetic maker sees its profit slide. Toyota Motor is powering ahead, becoming Japan's largest company by market value and reporting record sales and profit for the first six months of the year. Toyota's market capitalization, the value of its shares, on the Tokyo Stock Exchange now totals about $112 billion, surpassing mobile phone giant NTT DoCoMo, the previous market leader. Toyota said this week that its net profit rose 23 percent to $4.8 billion for the first half of the year compared with the same period last year. Revenue rose eight percent to $75 billion. Toyota credits cost cutting and global marketing efforts for its strong results. Managing Director Takeshi Suzuki tells reporters that he is pleased with the company's performance. He adds that the automaker is increasing local production around the world to minimize the effects of volatile currency exchange rates. Toyota says it aims to control 15 percent of the world auto market by 2010, up from the current level of just over 10 percent. Japan's second biggest automaker, Honda, is recalling almost 700,000 vehicles in the United States and Canada because of a defect. Honda says it will recall five models including the popular Accord sedan because of a faulty mechanism that causes parked cars to roll. The recall will cost the company $32 million. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says there have been four injuries linked to the defect and more than 100 complaints have been made about it. Japan's biggest cosmetics maker posted weak earnings. Shiseido say its net profit declined 34 percent in the first half of the fiscal year to $60 million, from the same period a year earlier. Overseas sales, which account for a quarter of the company's revenue, were down sharply. Many Japanese women buy cosmetics overseas at duty-free shops where they are less expensive. But many would-be travelers stayed home this year because of the U.S.-led war in Iraq and the outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome.

Trump Breaking News Network - Toyota Stock Hits A Pothole After Trump Rebukes Japanese Automaker. Although Toyota sought to stem the damage from President-elect Donald Trump’s Thursday tweet denouncing the construction of a new plant in Mexico, the Japanese automaker suffered a setback on Wall Street. Trump posted Thursday that Toyota would pay a hefty “border tax” if it didn’t build the plant in the United States. Back in September, Toyota announced that it would spend $150 million at the Baja plant to boost output of its Tacoma pickup truck. The company has also said it seeks to invest $1 billion in a new Corolla plant at Guanajuato that would produce 200,000 vehicles per year for sales throughout North America. The plant would employ 2,000 people. Trump’s fingers had barely stopped sending the tweet when Wall Street felt its impact. Toyota shares began plummeting almost instantly, causing an initial drop of around $1.2 billion in value. The stock price finished the day down 0.75 points, or 0.62 percent. Experts expect the stock price will rebound over time, as happened before to Boeing when Trump tweeted criticism over the cost of the new Air Force One. Toyota later issued a statement insisting its Mexico plans would not hurt employment in the United States. “Toyota has been part of the cultural fabric in the U.S. for nearly 60 years,” the statement read. “Production volume or employment in the U.S. will not decrease as a result of our new plant in Guanajuato, Mexico announced in April 2015,” it said in part of a statement released on Twitter. Trump’s jab at Toyota followed a campaign promise that he would attack automakers that either invest or move jobs outside of America. Ford, which was the subject of many of Trump’s campaign comments, recently said it will not build a planned plant in Mexico. General Motors, which was criticized by Trump earlier this week for building the Chevrolet Cruze in Mexico while laying off Ohio workers, responded by saying that the model made in Mexico had minimal U.S. sales and that the layoffs were due to market factors in the U.S. One expert said whether Trump wins or loses his battles with the auto giants, the fact that he is fighting them resonates politically with one key group. “Trump’s attack tweets against different companies may seem pretty random, but look closer. When he calls out Carrier, Ford, GM, Lockheed-Martin, Boeing, etc., all of the companies he’s targeting have something in common: They’re either unionized companies or in generally unionized industries,” wrote Jake Novak on CNBC, who said Trump’s “protectionist and border security message, which became evident right from the first day he announced his campaign, clearly spoke to union rank-and-file members across the country.” When Trump fights for union jobs, he increases his support among union members, undercutting a traditional base of the Democratic Party, Novak wrote. “Expect this to continue throughout his presidency. And all it takes is a look at the election map to see why. Trump’s siphoning of union support from the Democrats brought him a narrow election victory, it’s only logical that he’ll do what it takes to siphon yet more to ensure more support and a bigger re-election margin in the coming years,” he added.
