“The Corolla has been a good-selling car for us, and I think the new model will be even better,” said Jim Nichols, fleet manager and factory relations liaison at Carlock Toyota in Tupelo.
Toyota Mississippi built about 1.2 million 11th-generation Corollas.
And a trivia note: The last 11th-generation Corolla to roll off the line in Blue Springs was Barcelona Red, the same color as the 100,000th, 500,000th and 1 millionth Corolla that were produced at the plant. But there are no plans to keep the last vehicle – it’s headed to a dealer somewhere in the U.S., officials said.
