Toyota plans to expand its electric battery manufacturing site in Randolph County, North Carolina. The $8 billion project is expected to create 3,000 jobs.

The investment will include eight production lines, increasing capacity for electric vehicle battery production and adding new capacity to produce batteries for plug-in hybrid vehicles, according to company officials.

“This investment reflects our commitment to electrification and carbon reduction, and it enables jobs and future economic growth for the region,” said Sean Suggs, president of Toyota North Carolina. “We are excited to see the continued energy and support of this innovative manufacturing facility.”

Toyota’s investment at the site will now total $13.9 billion and more than 5,000 jobs.
