Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana (TMMI) has donated a Tundra pickup truck to the City of Princeton’s police department along with $US100,000 to Indiana University to commemorate the one-millionth vehicle built at the plant.

“Today’s donations are our way of thanking the community for its support of TMMI since the very beginning,” said a Toyota spokesman.

The police department will use the Tundra for regular transport while the university will offer two $2,500 scholarships a year.

TMMI’s milestone is the result of a six-year, $2.5 billion investment by Toyota in its Princeton plant. The company currently has an additional truck plant under construction in Texas.
