Toyota says it will build the next generation of its Auris hatchback at the company’s Burnaston plant in Derbyshire.
The Japanese carmaker also says its Deeside factory in North Wales will build most of the required engines. It comes after Toyota promised to invest £240m in upgrading Burnaston last March. According to the company, the move will secure more than 3000 jobs across its Burnaston and Deeside plants. The factory is being upgraded with new equipment, technologies and systems to enable manufacture of vehicles on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform.
