Mazda has announced a joint venture with Toyota to build a $1.6 billion manufacturing plant in the United States. Cardinale Mazda in Salinas, located in the Salinas Auto Mall, is excited about this new development. This is great news for the American economy. Not to mention, it’s a huge opportunity for Mazda to join forces with Toyota, another Japanese automaker. Could this be the beginning of a beautiful partnership?
New Plant Will Add 4,000 Jobs
Although a location for the new Mazda-Toyota auto manufacturing plant has yet to be disclosed, it’s expected that the facility will add up to 4,000 jobs. This is welcome news for the U.S. business sector. The new plant will manufacturer Toyota Corolla sedans and a Mazda crossover SUV intended for the North American market. It’s expected that the manufacturing plant, slated to open in 2021, will produce up to 300,000 vehicles per year. The two Japanese automakers will split the cost of the new plant. In addition, Toyota purchased 5.05% shares in Mazda, and to reciprocate, Mazda invested .25% in Toyota stock.
