Toyota to Add Luxury Model Work at Canadian Plants
April 30, 2019—Toyota will soon build a new vehicle in Canada, adding the Lexus NX luxury SUV to its Ontario assembly plants as of 2022, according to CBC.
Currently the factory, along with a plant in nearby Woodstock, Ont., produces the Toyota RAV4 crossover vehicle, and two versions of the Lexus RX. A new assembly line at the Cambridge facility will be added to build the new vehicle starting in three years. Both a gas and gas-electric hybrid will be produced at the site.
The company did not specify how much money the company was planning to invest, or how many jobs the new production might mean when it starts.
Last year, Toyota committed to spending $1.4 billion at its Canadian facilities in Cambridge and nearby Woodstock, Ont., switching them over to what it calls its New Global Architecture—a status that allows them to be nimble enough to easily accept new work.
