Toyota Motor Manufacturing Czech Republic has started production of Yaris at its manufacturing plant in Kolin. TMMCZ becomes the second European plant to produce the region’s best-selling Yaris, alongside Toyota Motor Manufacturing France. The introduction of a second model marks an important milestone for TMMCZ after it transferred into the full ownership of Toyota Motor Europe in January 2021. Toyota has invested over €180M, transforming the plant to produce A and B segment vehicles on its TNGA B-platform (Toyota New Global Architecture). The plant’s capacity is now expanded, and three shift operations have been introduced for the ramp-up of Yaris and the introduction of new Aygo X in 2022.Toyota’s investment also enables the production of hybrid electric vehicles at TMMCZ, reflecting the success of the Yaris Hybrid, which represents 80% of Yaris European sales mix. The hybrid electric powertrains for both TMMCZ and TMMF are manufactured at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Poland.
