Toyota/Lexus Production : 2020-22 (2022 Jan-Jun)


Having to walk to work because the car's not charged.
I hate it when that happens.

Toyota manufactures cars in many places as we can see in the chart below. Managing it all must be a logistical exercise of careful planning and deliberation as to what is made where. 

Asia: Many countries in Asia 'protect' their car industries with import duty so to be there you have to make cars there. The problem is the tariffs stay in place even when the industry no longer requires them. Some still do require protection but for others, it's simply an anti-import policy. 

65% of all Toyota's are made in this region, over three quarters of which are assembled in Japan and China. Japan and Thailand are strong in exports, the rest mainly for local consumption to get around import duty.  

North America: Plants in all three Nafta nations produce cars for the company, comprising 21% of all vehicles made. 

Europe: Not as many cars made here as should be? Five countries have been involved although one has dropped off, Russia. The lack of sales in the region of Europe inhibits production volume. The smaller nimbers involved for now at least cannot justify assembling more in Europe, unless share increases.

Latin America: Growing numerically as market share gains are achieved. Two countries are manufacturing, Brazil and Argentina. 

Africa: That is South Africa and not much else, as expected.
