Interesting news out of Indiana… Toyota has announced plans to invest $100M to expand Highlander production at their Princeton, IN facility. They will also be adding 300 jobs there by 2016.
From January through July 2014, the Highlander sold ca. 90k units, a 16% increase over the same period in 2013. Not too shabby. Given the strength of Highlander sales, I’m not surprised that they want to increase production capacity. Give the people what they want. 🙂
As I understand it, they have two assembly lines in Indiana. They currently build the Highlander in the West Plant, alongside the larger Sequoia. And they’ll be expanding production to the East Plant, which is currently home to the Sienna minivan.
