Toyota to Invest in Five US Manufacturing Plants


Toyota Motor Corp. announces a $374,000,000 dollar investment at five US plants to support production of its first American-made hybrid powertrain. The upgrades at Toyota’s factories in Alabama, Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee and West Virginia are part of a previously announced $10,000,000,000 in US spending by the Japanese automaker. Toyota will create 50 new jobs at the Alabama plant, which will build engines for its cost-saving New Global Architecture production strategy to share common parts and components among different vehicles. Toyota Motor North America CEO Jim Lentz says “this investment is part of our long-term commitment to build more vehicles and components in the markets in which we sell them.”
