Australia’s other export earners

Toyota, which plans to build left-hand-drive Camrys right up to its October 3 deadline, will go down in history as Australia’s most prolific exporter. In 2013 it pegged a million export sales, overtaking Holden’s then-tally of about 907,000 cars. Ford Australia, which switched the tap off local production in October last year, has exported about 250,000 mainly Falcon and Territory-badged cars, although in the early 1990s it built and exported 55,808 left-handdrive Ford Capris to the US. All up, Australia will have exported about 2.25 million cars.
