TNGA Brought to Life -- Want a deeper dive into Toyota New Global Architecture? Well, check out this animated infographic. 


For the past few years, you’ve probably heard the term “TNGA” over and over again at Toyota events.
And you probably know that it’s a new way Toyota is manufacturing cars.
But, do you really know what that entails?
It occurred to us that Toyota New Global Architecture – or TNGA for short – might be little more than an abstract idea for a lot of team members. After all, it’s an incredibly intricate topic, especially for those who don’t have manufacturing backgrounds.
That’s why we decided to create an animated infographic that sheds a little more light on what TNGA is, how it works and what it will create. We worked with TNGA experts to gather the information, and with the excellent animated infographic geniuses at Animagraffs to make this happen.
And, since the 2018 Camry – which began production at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky last week – will be the first TNGA vehicle built in North America, the TNGA era is upon us. This seems like the right time to unveil it.  
So, here’s the TNGA infographic.
We think you’ll love going through this piece, and you should absolutely feel free to send the link (again: to everyone you know.
