February 28, 2013

The aim is to export 5,000 units a year to the rapidly expanding markets, following more than 70% of Toyota’s vehicles sold in the US last year being assembled in North American plants and the first exports reaching South Korea in November.

“We are proud that Toyota’s U.S. manufacturing operations are continuing to grow as a key supplier of vehicles for global markets, which is only possible thanks to the dedication and high-quality work of our team members here,†said Shigeki Terashi, president and COO of Toyota Motor North America, Inc.  “We expect the export of Venza vehicles to Russia and Ukraine will help further solidify our U.S. manufacturing base.â€
