Thanks to new assigment, more than 600 new jobs are about to be opened within the company.
Since Toyota is recording constantly growing numbers of hybrid cars (while also moving diesel-powered cars from Europe), so are growing demands for special parts for those cars. One of them is hybrid transmission and now, when Toyota has presented the fourth generation of this element, they have also decided to spread the production. From now on, they are also going to be produced in Poland.
The plan is a part, or better yet, the first part in the phase of introduction of advanced hybrid technology, called TNGA, which is shorter for Toyota New Global Architecture. Even more, Polish factory, based in Walbrzych, is also going to be the first facility to be the part of it, which just goes to show, that – next to the billion-dollar investment – Toyota has some serious plans regarding the development of Polish car industry. More than 600 new jobs are also about to be opened in this new factory.
"Hybrid technology is our most important differentiator. But it's just part of our ambitious electrification strategy, which aims to sell more than 5.5 million electrified vehicles worldwide by 2030, including one million zero emission vehicles per year. The continued hybrid growth in Europe enables the expansion of local production of hybrid components,” commented Dr. Johan van Zyl, president and CEO of Toyota Motor Europe.
