Toyota GT 86 and Subaru BRZ Production Starts in Japan
The ceremony that kicked off production was presided over by Toyota Motor Company (TMC) President Akio Toyoda. The assembly plant is situated in the Gunma Prefecture, which is in the heart of Japan.
Up until now, the plant was used to make minicars for the regional market, but it has been renewed to make not only the “Toyobaru”, but also the new Impreza starting March 2013.
“I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the ceaseless efforts of all FHI people and staff who were involved in the development, production and preparations for both models. The Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 not have been successfully developed without collaboration between FHI and TMC. We started the alliance for mutual growth in 2005. Now I’m delighted to see this moment that our alliance surely bore fruit,” says TMC President Akio Toyoda.
