For more than 30 years, Toyota has been a leading manufacturer in America. In fact, the Tundra and Tacoma are both in Texas. The largest Toyota plant in the world is right here in America in Georgetown, Kentucky, and it recently celebrated a huge milestone. In March, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky built its 13 millionth vehicle since 1988.
“On one hand, it’s hard to believe we have produced 13 million vehicles,” said Susan Elkington, TMMK president. “However, when you consider the dedication and skill of our Kentucky team it isn’t so hard to imagine. It’s incredible to think about our customers, their families, and all the places they’ve gone in our 13 million vehicles. Looking forward, we are excited about the future of mobility and being able to take more people, more places.”
A beautiful Blue Flame 2021 RAV4 Hybrid was the milestone vehicle off the assembly line in Kentucky. The plant began building the powerful yet efficient SUV in January 2020, manufacturing it alongside the Toyota Camry and Avalon.
To celebrate the occasion, Toyota Kentucky made another commitment to America. It pledged $1.3 million to science, technology, education, and math (STEM) education across the state, delivering grants to organizations like Jobs for America’s Graduates and the Black Male Working Academy.
Though challenging, this year has proven a major one for Toyota in America. Toyota Kentucky expects to build its 10 millionth Camry later this year, which aligns with the 35th anniversary of the plant’s opening. Toyota also built its 30 million vehicle in North America earlier in the year.
