PRINCETON, Ind. — A manufacturing milestone was reached this week at the Toyota Motor North America plant in Princeton when the 30-millionth U.S.-assembled Toyota vehicle rolled off the line.
Hoosier workers completed the production of an all-hybrid 2021 Toyota Sienna minivan, according to Inside Indiana Business.
Toyota started making vehicles in the United States in 1986. It now operates 10 plants in the U.S.
The Princeton plant opened in 1996 to manufacture the Tundra pickup truck, but it now makes the Sienna minivan, Sequoia full-size SUV, and the Highlander and Highlander Hybrid mid-size vehicle.
Toyota employs about 7,000 people at the Princeton plant.
“Being responsible for Toyota’s 30-millionth U.S.–assembled vehicle is a huge point of pride for all of us at Toyota Indiana,” Leah Curry, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana president, told Inside Indiana Business. “Together with our supplier partners, we build vehicles with our customers in mind.”
The Princeton plant has the capacity to produce more than 400,000 vehicles every year.
