Toyota-Manufacturing
(2008-07-10)
(wgvu) - Toyota Motor Corp. is planning significant
changes to its U.S. manufacturing plants because of the rapid market shift away from trucks and sport utility vehicles.

A Toyota official speaking Thursday to The Associated Press says the company plans to shut down a San Antonio plant that makes the Toyota Tundra pickup for three months to reduce inventory and stop making pickups in Princeton, Ind. The Indiana plant will start producing the Highlander SUV.

The official asked not to be identified because a formal announcement from the Japanese automaker wasn't expected until
later in the day.

Toyota also plans to start producing the Prius hybrid in the U.S. for the first time at a plant it's building in Mississippi.
