Toyota Motor Corp. will be constructing a $1 billion factory in Mexico specifically to manufacture their new Corolla compact that is expected to go on sale as a 2020 model. Mexico was chosen by the major car producer due to the lost costs of business, a strong regional supplier base, and their new architecture called TNGA. With all of these combined, the 2020 Corolla is expected to become more competitive on price and otherwise. Toyota’s TNGA - basic materials and methods for constructing the chassis and body of the car - will result in a car that has an improved lower center of gravity, ride, handling, lighter weight, and better fuel efficiency.The new factory will be built in Guanajuato, Mexico and will create approximately 2,000 jobs. With production beginning in 2019, Toyota estimates that it will be able to produce upwards of 200,000 Corollas per year for North American customers and possibly export. Currently, Corollas are also being produced in Blue Spring, Mississippi and Ontario, Canada where they are distributed to 18 countries.
