Popular SUV responsible for $430 million investment and more than 600 jobs by 2014 end Princeton, Indiana and Toyota Motor will start Indiana’s TMMI production facility of the all-new 2014 Highlander Hybrid Electric Car. TMMI team members and area citizens have much to celebrate, as the popular midsize SUV is responsible for $430 million additional investment and more than 600 jobs at the Princeton automotive plant. The Princeton plant will begin producing the hybrid version early next 2015. Highlanders born in Indiana will find new homes with drivers in the Russian and Australian regions as TMMI expands its export reach.
Highlander Hybrid Electric Vehicle export business allows for better utilization of the Indiana plant, and helps capitalize on the improving North American and global auto market. In addition to the new jobs created at the Indiana plant, this project increases opportunities and jobs for Toyota’s North American supply base.
