Toyota expanding in US

Recommended Posts

Toyota is investing around $750 million in the United States, resulting in another 600 jobs, to make more engines (Alabama), hybrid crossovers (Kentucky), hybrid transaxles (West Virginia), and aluminum castings (Tennessee and Missouri.) 

All of Toyota's investments are in the anti-union South, and might be replacing  jobs in the UK. The investments in Kentucky and Missouri don't involve more jobs, and the Tennessee investment will only add 13 jobs.

Toyota’s plan, overall, is to invest around $13 billion in the United States from 2017 to 2023. Around $5 billion has already been spent and around $3 billion hasn't been announced yet. 

The Kentucky plant only makes cars now, but will add the RAV4 and a small Lexus crossover.

It's kind of interesting to me that part of it is adapting to the crossover craze, and part is increasing electrification.
