Toyota has announced an investment and new jobs at its Indiana plant in preparation to launch two all-new three-row SUVs.
Toyta says these SUVs are designed with “the active Gen Y American Family in mind”. Generation Y, we recall, are Millennials born in 1981-1996.
The automaker invests $803 million in the Toyota Motor Manufacturing facility, Indiana (TMMI). The company also plans to hire 1,400 new employees.
The reason is to prepare the assembly line for new products – a pair of 8-passenger sport utility vehicles. One will bear the Toyota name, and one will be a Lexus.
Predictably, both will be electrified. On-sale models will come with a semi-automated driving system, a remote parking system, and a digital key.
The investment and new vehicle lineup will expand Toyota’s portfolio of carbon-neutral cars to around 70 models worldwide by 2025.
