Toyota Georgetown plant to produce two hybrid vehicles in new multimillion-dollar investment | Lexington Herald Leader

Toyota Motor North America executive Chris Reynolds said the investments represent yet more examples of the company's long-term commitment to build where it sells, irrespective of trade uncertainty due to tariffs.

Toyota announced a year ago it would jointly build a new $1.6 billion plant with Mazda Motor Corp in Alabama. "But these decisions we're making today are really driven by consumers and our product portfolio going forward, for the most part". This donation is part of Toyota's focus on building the future workforce.

In addition to the investment in Alabama, Toyota officials announced their plan to invest a total of $13 billion in its United States operations by 2021 with plans to add 600 new jobs at American manufacturing plants.

That one was a $115.3 million investment to produce the company's first American-made hybrid transaxles.

Previously, Toyota also announced a $600 million investment at its Princeton, Indiana, plant to increase the capacity of its Highlander SUV and to incorporate the new production strategy, and $170 million to launch the 2020 Corolla on a new production line in Blue Springs, Mississippi.

In Huntsville, Toyota announced Thursday the creation of 450 news jobs at the motor manufacturing facility as well as a $288 million expansion.

"TMMK's 8,000 team members also build Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, Avalon Hybrid and Lexus ES models with an annual capacity of 550,000 vehicles", a company spokesperson said.

Toyota now manufactures the Camry, Avalon, Lexus ES 350, Camry hybrid and Avalon hybrid at the Georgetown facility.

Toyota leaders say they plan to boost production of the RAV4 Hybrid in January of 2020 with a capacity of about 100,000 units per year.

"Toyota has been a wonderful partner for West Virginia". We are immensely proud that the Bluegrass State is home to Toyota's largest manufacturing operation, and we enthusiastically support this substantial investment to address the rising demand for hybrid vehicles.
