Prius Production to Mississippi, All Tundra to Texas
Prius production will begin here in late 2010 at a brand-new plant currently under construction in Blue Springs, Mississippi. Prius thus will join the Kentucky-built Camry Hybrid as the second Toyota hybrid produced in North America.
Production of the Highlander midsize SUV, originally scheduled for the new Mississippi plant, will shift to our Princeton, Indiana plant. That change becomes effective Fall 2009.
Toyota is temporarily suspending Tundra and Sequoia production beginning August 8th. Production is scheduled to resume in November. Production of V8 engines at our Huntsville, Alabama plant also will be suspended.
Team members at all three facilities will be provided employment during this period.
