Toyota is Bringing Production of its First Hybrid Powertrain to the U.S.

Last month, Toyota revealed the company's plans to invest $373.8 million in five U.S. manufacturing plants in order to support production of its first American-made hybrid powertrain and implement Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) at its plant in Alabama.

The investments will allow facilities in Tennessee, Missouri, West Virginia and Kentucky to expand their capabilities to manufacture 2.5-liter engines and hybrid vehicle transmissions, which will be used in hybrid vehicles like the Highlander Hybrid that's built in Princeton, Indiana.

The Huntsville, Alabama, plant will receive a comprehensive upgrade in order to build engines that complement TNGA. This investment, along with other projects Toyota has previously announced, brings Toyota's U.S. investment to $4.1 billion, nearly half of the $10 billion commitment announced in January 2017.

In a press release, Jim Lentz, CEO, Toyota Motor North America, stated, "This investment is part of our long-term commitment to build more vehicles and components in the markets in which we sell them. This strategy is designed to better serve our customers and dealers, and positions our manufacturing operations to fulfill their needs well into the future."
