Camry Hybrid Sets Milestone for Production in the US

Toyota has now produced its 100,000th Camry Hybrid at the Georgetown, Kentucky plant. After just two years, the $10 million investment at the plant has seen a trememdous output from the first plant in the US to produce a hybrid.

Back when the plant was first updated, the Prius and the Camry Hybrid were being built in Japan, resulting in a bottleneck in hybrid production. Every Camry Hybrid built meant a Prius was not being built. By moving production to the US, the plants in Japan were able to build more Prius, resulting in a huge production and sales gain. It's what allowed the Prius to move into the top 10 category for cars being sold.

Other car built at the plant include the Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, Solara convertible and Venza. The plant is the largest manufacturing facility in North America and employs 7,000. It can produce up to 500,000 vehicles and engines annually.
