The second generation of the Toyota C-HR will be produced by Toyota Motor Manufacturing Turkey (TMMT) in Sakarya. Available in hybrid and plug-in hybrid models, the new Toyota C-HR will also be the first plug-in hybrid passenger car produced in Turkey. Toyota’s plant in Sakarya will be the first plant in Europe to produce plug-in hybrid vehicles and to have a battery production line.
The new % 100 electric Toyota C-HR demonstrates its commitment to Europe’s largest and most competitive segment and to carbon reduction. The plug-in hybrid Toyota C-HR, as well as locally manufactured batteries, will advance Toyota’s multi-technology ambition for Europe’s 2035 zero emission target.
TMMT’s new plug-in battery assembly line will have an annual capacity of 75,000 units. The line is expected to be operational in December 2023. The investment amount for this project is approximately €317 million. The total investment in TMMT is around EU 2.3 billion. In addition to improving the production line, this investment will meet Toyota’s future product diversity and flexibility.
In Europe, Toyota aims for full carbon neutrality by 2040. In addition, it aims to achieve carbon neutrality at all its plants by 2030. To achieve this goal, Toyota is investing in technologies that will minimize energy consumption while at the same time transitioning to renewable energy sources in Sakarya plants.
