Toyota to Start Hybrid Production in Kentucky

camry.jpgWe’ve had so many Toyota related posts here lately, it’s getting a little uncanny, but nonetheless, this one is worth it. Toyota will begin production of its newest hybrid – a version of the Camry – at its Kentucky plant in about a year.
The fact that Toyota is moving forward with more hybrid production is great, but the bigger side of this story is that it represents a solid commitment to jobs and economy in the auto-maker’s biggest market: the USA. With both GM and Ford struggling to stay afloat, Toyota’s continued investment means a less shakey future for America.

  1. If it wasn’t for companies like toyota, nissan, and kia, gm and ford wouldn’t be failing. We wouldn’t have this “shakey” economy if it wasn’t for them!
