An exciting announcement from Toyota today – it will produce RAV4 and RAV4 hybrid vehicles in its Cambridge North Assembly plant starting in 2019. With Lexus RX in Cambridge, and Toyota RAV4 in Woodstock and Cambridge, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada (TMMC) will become a North American hub for sport utility vehicles. The company also announced that it will be adding hybrid RAV4 production.

With commitment to production in Canada comes an investment in new technology: Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA). TNGA is an innovative, integrated approach to developing and building vehicles, involving new production equipment and new processes. This investment will revitalize the plant and create the foundation for future success.

This announcement represents a continued vote of confidence in Canadian production and will serve to sustain strong employment at the TMMC plants. Toyota is committed to growing manufacturing in North America and this decision demonstrates how Toyota plans to make the most of its manufacturing capabilities.
