Toyota’s European Manufacturing Plants

Production facilities spanning the continent  
Europe is a major manufacturing hub for us. Today we have eight manufacturing centres in Europe, building cars, engines and transmissions. Each one is committed to delivering ever better cars for our customers.

Eight manufacturing sites

We believe it is important to make cars close to where they are sold. It’s a philosophy we also apply in Europe. Here, we have eight manufacturing sites in six countries. They produce seven different models – Aygo, Yaris, Corolla, Toyota C-HR and, for export only, Land Cruiser – plus engines and transmissions. Not only do these supply local markets, they also produce vehicles that are exported around the world.

Local manufacturing philosophy

The business principle of making vehicles in the markets where they will be sold has proved its value not just in Europe, but in many other world regions too. By developing “local” manufacturing sites, we can better understand how our customers use their cars and what their priorities and preferences are when deciding which model to buy. This kind of knowledge is important in our mission to build ever-better cars. Local manufacturing also helps us deliver vehicles more quickly, reducing the time, cost and environmental impact of shipping cars around the world. 

A truly European product

We have a workforce of more than 21,000 people dedicated to building not just all the different models we manufacture in Europe, but also most of the engines and transmissions they use. Many drivers may not realise that there a high chance their Toyota was built in Europe. In fact, 7 out of 10 Toyota cars sold in Europe are built at one of our European production centres.

We first began building cars in Europe on a relatively small scale in 1971.
