History

The Troller company started in 1995, by Rogério Farias. In April 1996, the first prototype was built. In 1997, Troller was bought by the entrepreneur Mário Araripe, who formed a partnership with Rogério Farias, and the first gasoline-powered T4s were built. The mass-production of the vehicles started in 1999, when a factory was built.

In 2005, a manufacturing plant opened in Angola to build the T4 for the African market.

Ford do Brasil announced in January 2007 the acquisition of Troller for an undisclosed price.
