US: Toyota to ship Venza to Russia and Ukraine
Toyota will start exporting US-assembled Venza vehicles to Russia and Ukraine this year.
The shipments are expected to build upon last year's record export of 124,000 US vehicles to 21 markets, an increase of 45% year on year.
"We are proud that Toyota's U.S. manufacturing operations are continuing to grow as a key supplier of vehicles for global markets, which is only possible thanks to the dedication and high-quality work of our team members here," said Shigeki Terashi, president and COO of Toyota Motor North America. "We expect the export of Venza vehicles to Russia and Ukraine will help further solidify our U.S. manufacturing base."
Once production begins in April 2013, Toyota expects to export approximately 5,000 Venzas to Russia and Ukraine during the first year. These vehicles will be built at the company's Georgetown, Kentucky plant, which employs about 6,600. Georgetown is the company's largest manufacturing facility outside of Japan.
Venza exports to Russia and Ukraine will ship from Brunswick, Georgia.
