Toyota has been increasing activity at its Michigan centers, including the York Township technical center and a facility in Ann Arbor Township. The 2013 Toyota Avalon was entirely designed and engineered in North America with the bulk of the activity happening in Southeast Michigan.
Additionally, the transmission engineering for the company’s all-electric Rav-4 model was done in Michigan. Over the past two years, Toyota has pledged to invest more than $2 billion in its North American Facilities, according to the News’ story.
The Detroit News reported that previous CEOs of Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing North America Inc. have been based at the company’s headquarters near Los Angeles.
