Toyota plans new line at Japan engine plant

Toyota plans new line at Japan engine plant

Reuters / November 29, 2006 - 8:00 am

TOKYO -- Toyota Motor Corp. will invest $170 million to $260 million (20 billion to 30 billion yen) to double output capacity at one of its domestic engine plants to 400,000 units, the Nihon Keizai business daily reported today.

The paper said a new line could begin operations in 2008 and would be built next to an engine plant in the town of Kanda on the southern island of Kyushu. The plant is operated by Toyota unit Toyota Motor Kyushu Inc.

Toyota is striving to make Kyushu a second domestic engine production center after Aichi prefecture, where the automaker has its headquarters, the paper said.

A Toyota spokeswoman said the automaker was always looking for ways to increase production capacity to meet growing vehicle demand, but added that no decision had been made.

The new line would make 3.0-liter V-6 engines for vehicles such as the Harrier SUV, which is sold as the Lexus RX in the United States, and Toyota may also export the engines, the paper said.
