On January 30, Toyota Europe announced that the second-generation Toyota C-HR will be produced at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Turkey (TMMT) in Sakarya. Available in hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions, the new Toyota C-HR will also be the first plug-in hybrid passenger car to be produced in Turkey. In addition, TMMT will be Toyota’s first European plant to start producing plug-in hybrid vehicles and the first to be equipped with a battery production line.
Alongside the vehicle production line, TMMT will build a new plug-in battery assembly line with a capacity of 75,000 units per year within its facility. Plug-in hybrid battery assembly will start in December 2023, creating around 60 new skilled jobs. It will also support other Toyota Europe plants in the future. The total investment for this project will be around EUR 317 million, bringing the overall cumulative investment in TMMT to around EUR 2.3 billion.
TMMT is introducing technologies that minimize energy consumption while at the same time, switching to renewable energy within the Sakarya plant. These measures include the introduction of new paint shop technologies which minimize CO2 emissions and the use of solar energy which aims to make the plant self-sufficient in its energy use.
