Toyota has made the commitment to offer an electrified version of every vehicle across its entire lineup of both Toyota and Lexus vehicles by 2025. This commitment to the production of alternative-powered vehicles (APVs) such as hybrids, plug-ins, fuel cells, and completely electric vehicles, will help Toyota reach its goals for carbon neutrality. In November 2021, Toyota West Virginia took the lead in doing the work of this commitment by making a $240 million investment to add a dedicated production line of hybrid transaxles.
This new line will provide new equipment and operational upgrades to modernize the facilities. The most important result of the investment is that it will enable the training of plant employees to diversify their skillset and play a larger role in Toyota’s electric future.
This investment in West Virginia’s future garnered endorsements from West Virginia’s Governor Jim Justice, and Senators Joe Manchin and Shelley Moore Capito.
