Toyota Teams Up with Mazda for a $1.6 Billion Manufacturing Plant

As two of the most successful Japanese automakers, the Toyota and Mazda brands have just taken impressive steps towards the future of electric and self-driving cars. Their joint partnership, just announced last week, will result in the construction of a $1.6 billion assembly plant in the United States - ushering in over 4,000 jobs from its production of nearly 300,000 vehicles per year, all by its opening in 2021. While Mazda will personally build new US crossover models, the Toyota brand will build new Corolla sedans for American drivers.

The most important aspect of this partnership stems from the collaborative environment that both companies plan on promoting. Plans are in place to co-develop a new generation of infotainment systems, which will utilize a form of vehicle-to-vehicle communication that will likely prove to be invaluable for the next phase of self-driving cars. No matter if you're a longtime Toyota or Mazda owner, there is no doubt that this announcement is huge for both brands - as well as our inventory here at Sloane Toyota of Malvern.
