Toyota to build PHEVs and batteries in Turkey
Toyota Motor Manufacturing Türkiye (TMMT) in Sakarya, Turkey will build the second-generation Toyota C-HR, which will be available in hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions.
TMMT will also establish a 75,000-unit-per-year battery assembly plant alongside its car manufacturing line. Plug-in hybrid battery assembly will begin in December 2023, producing 60 skilled jobs.
Total investment for this project will be around €317 million, bringing Toyota’s cumulative investment in TMMT to around €2.3 billion.
“This marks an important milestone: our first battery assembly line [for the European market], which is an important step in our European electrification plan,” said Toyota Motor Europe EVP Manufacturing Marvin Cooke.
