Toyota will produce parts exclusively in the U.S: For the first time in Toyota’s history the automaker will produce parts exclusively in the U.S.. The carmaker will invest $373.8 million into hybrid powertrains here. The money invested will be split between 5 U.S. manufacturing plants, and each new project will begin this year, and must be completely operational by 2020.
"This investment is part of our long-term commitment to build more vehicles and components in the markets in which we sell them," Toyota Motor North America CEO Jim Lentz. New production of hybrid transaxles will begin at the company's Buffalo, W.Va., facility with the support of $115.3 million, the first time Toyota has made that part domestically.
