Toyota Indiana recently reported starting production of the 2014 Highlander midsize SUV. The company also said that it will make a hybrid version and it will also export the model to a couple more regions.
The Princeton plant is now building a gasoline version of the Toyota Highlander and officials said that it will begin producing a hybrid version early next year. The model will also find new owners in the Russian and Australian regions, as the company plans to expand its export reach.

“The all-new Highlander is a dynamic, stylish SUV and its quality craftsmanship and the fact that it will be exported to the Russian and Australian markets is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team members.” TMMI president Norman Bafunno said.  “This really is a milestone for our entire team,”

Highlander exporting allows for better utilization of the Indiana plant and helps capitalize on the improving North American and global auto market. The new project also increases opportunities and jobs for Toyota’s North American supply base.
