This March, the 13-millionth vehicle rolled off the assembly line at Toyota’s plant in the USA.
The company’s largest plant worldwide – Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky (TMMK) – launched production in Georgetown in 1988.
In March 2021, the facility produced its special, ‘milestone’ vehicle – the thirteen millionth one. It is the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid with a striking appearance.
The RAV4 is the best-selling model of the brand in 2020 in the United States (430,387 sales). The RAV4 Hybrid is ranked high in the Hybrid and Electric SUV category. Its current, 2021 pricing is between $28,500-37,030. Its strengths include an energetic powertrain, good mileage, an array of standard features, and ample space for occupants and cargo.
TMMK employs over 10,000 Kentuckians, and it is best known as the maker of the Avalon and Camry. Production of the RAV4 Hybrid began last January after Toyota invested over $1.5 billion in total, since 2017.
Toyota’s entire investment in its North American manufacture exceeds $13 billion from 2017 to 2021.
This year is a remarkable one for Toyota, full of milestones. In February, the company celebrated the 30 millionth vehicle made in North America. It was a Toyota Sienna.
In 2021, Toyota Kentucky will celebrate its 35th anniversary and the production of its 10 millionth Camry.
