Just how many different models does Toyota sell?

I was in Southeast Asia recently and noticed a load of middling Toyotas that I had never heard of before, let alone seen. Vellfires, Sientas, Innovas. All different - yet in some ways similar - to what we get back home in Australia.

This got me thinking: 

If I were to walk into any Toyota dealership anywhere in the world what could I buy?

And so I went down a Toyota rabbit hole, visiting many, many, many international dealership websites, countless Wikipedia articles and loads of news sites.

From this I learnt that Toyota currently sells 54 different models of vehicle worldwide. And this doesn't include different nameplates based off the same model (EG: I've grouped the sporty Vellfire with its more stately sibling the Alphard as they're fundamentally different trim levels of the same car) or Lexus models.
