Toy­ota to de­lay start of new Mex­ico plant

New Straits Times - - Business -

Toy­ota Mo­tor would push back the start of op­er­a­tions at its sched­uled new plant in Mex­ico to the first half of 2020 from the planned 2019. It had ini­tially planned to build the Corolla sedan at the US$1 bil­lion (RM4.29 bil­lion) Gua­na­ju­ato plant, but said last week it would switch pro­duc­tion to a new United States fac­tory to be built with Mazda Mo­tor. The de­lay was nec­es­sary to ad­just its sup­ply chain in Mex­ico to pro­duce the truck-based Ta­coma pickup model in­stead of the Corolla com­pact car.
