The production of Toyota automobiles was started in 1933 as a division of Toyoda Automatic Loom Works devoted to the production of automobiles

Three A1 prototypes were completed in May 1935. The A1 was a fully enclosed, 4-door sedan, with normal front doors and forward-opening suicide-style rear doors. Used the 3,389 cc Type A 6-cylinder engine producing 62 horsepower with a 3-speed column-shift manual gearbox.

The Type A engine was copied from Chevrolet, and the chassis and electrics were copied from Ford. The mechanicals were the same as used in the production AA, AB and G1 vehicles. The A1 was available only as a right-hand-drive vehicle.
