Toyota has started production of its new city-style SUV, the Yaris Cross, at its factory in Valenciennes, France.

For the production of the vehicle, Toyota invested 400 million Euros and the 4th generation Yaris and the completely new Yaris Cross were produced on the same line at the factory. With the updates, the annual production capacity of Toyota’s TMMF factory in France increased to 300 thousand vehicles. With the production of Yaris Cross, the total number of employees at the Toyota factory in France reached approximately 5 thousand. Yaris Cross, which is in the B-SUV segment, was designed and developed to meet all the expectations of users. As part of Toyota’s electric motor vehicle sales plan for 90 percent of total sales in 2025, the low CO2 emission hybrid version of the new Yaris Cross is expected to be heavily preferred.

The electric breakthrough continues

Yaris Cross, built on Toyota’s GA-B platform, became the 8th model produced in Europe with TNGA architecture. The start of production also underlines the progress of Toyota’s localization strategy and increased production capacity. The Yaris Cross model will be an important part of Toyota’s growth target with 1.5 million sales plans in Europe in 2025. As Toyota’s vision of localization in Europe expands further this year, the Polish factory also started the production of hybrid transmissions and electric motors. 1.5 liter TNGA petrol and full hybrid power units for Toyota Yaris and Yaris Cross will be met here.
