Toyota to spend $1.33 billion in its Kentucky plant

News Hour:

Japanese automaker Toyota Motor Corp said it is spending $1.33 billion in its Kentucky plant as part of a plan to invest $10 billion in the United States over the next five years.

The investment in the plant, Toyota’s largest, comes amid uncertainty over U.S. President Donald Trump’s trade policies that could affect certain Japanese firms’ capital expenditure plans, reports Reuters.

Trump criticized the automaker earlier this year and said he would impose a hefty fee if it built its Corolla cars for the U.S. market at a plant in Mexico.

Toyota joins a host of automakers including Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Honda Motor Co and Daimler AG that have announced investments in the United States since Trump won the U.S. election. Even U.S. car manufacturers Ford Motor Co and General Motors have announced plans to spend more domestically.

“Toyota’s decision to invest $1.3 billion in their Kentucky plant is further evidence that manufacturers are now confident that the economic climate has greatly improved under my administration”, Trump said in the statement issued by Toyota.
