Nikkei wrote in its evening edition on Thursday that Toyota Motor said on Wednesday that it will build a new sport utility vehicle rather than the Corolla compact sedan at its new assembly plant in Alabama where production will begin in 2021. The paper speculated that the shift in the production plan is aimed at meeting the growing consumer demand for SUVs in the U.S., while noting that the automaker has not disclosed the production details for the new vehicle. Toyota will continue to build the Corolla at its Mississippi plant.
