The award-winning engine produced in Wales.
More than one million next-generation hybrid engines have now been produced in Wales at Toyota Manufacturing UK’s Deeside Plant.
The new engine is the latest generation of Toyota’s world-leading hybrid powertrain technology and will play an important role in Toyota Motor Europe’s ambitions for increasing hybrid vehicle sales.
It is being built at Deeside alongside current production of petrol and hybrid petrol units for the Auris range, and manufactured by TMUK at Burnaston in Derbyshire. The engines are also exported from the plant to other Toyota manufacturing centres in Europe, South America, South Africa and Japan.
Jim Crosbie, Engine Plant Director, said:
“Toyota has a long and successful record of building engines in north Wales. This announcement is a big vote of confidence in the high skills, quality of work and commitment of our workforce”.
