Toyota Kentucky Plant held a special ceremony in the presence of employees, community supporters and government dignitaries to mark the production of 10 millionth car.
This 10 millionth Toyota car will be presented with the first Camry to come off the assembly line in 1988 also in attendance. It was at this meet that President Wil James regaled audience about the love, care and excellent craftsmanship that goes into the building of the Camry.
Besides sharing their name and history, the company will also ensure that like its first model, this 10 millionth white hybrid Camry will also be given away to an employee via a random draw to be held later this year.
