If you noticed a considerably number of Toyotas on the streets recently, the explanation is that the automaker produced almost 2 million vehicles in 2013.
Last year, Toyota’s 14 manufacturing facilities in North America built 1,857,695, a 5 percent increase over 2012 and 1,715,709 engines, 3 percent more.

“Production is a direct reflection of a growing market and our focus on building cars and trucks that exceed our customers’ expectations,” said Osamu “Simon” Nagata, president and CEO of Toyota Motor Engineering North America, Inc. “As we look at 2014 and beyond we’ll continue to deliver products with the highest safety, quality, design and value.”

Last year, Indiana plant boosted its Highlander production by 50,000, Kentucky added more than 100,000 4-cylinder engines to its yearly output and the Ontario plant raised the RAV4 model’s annual capacity from 150,000 to 200,000.

Production increases will follow this year too, as the Indiana plant will increase the Highlander production by 15,000 units, Alabama will make more than 215,000 V6 engines, Ontario will make around 30,000 Lexus RXs and West Virginia will add 240,000 automatic transmissions to their output.
