总理贾斯汀特鲁多和安省总理凯瑟琳韦恩在安大略省剑桥市的一家丰田工厂宣布为安省汽车制造业投资14亿美元。
特鲁多说,加拿大和安大略省的政府各出资1.1亿美元。
丰田表示,这笔资金将投资于安大略省伍德斯托克的剑桥北工厂和西部工厂,为其汽车制造业提供更多的可能性。 该公司还将在10年内投资2亿美元用于加拿大的研发。

Toyota转移生产线
安大略省伍德斯托克工厂建立了丰田的RAV4生产线。
剑桥工厂计划在花冠生产之后专注于生产RAV4,该花冠目前在那里建成,最终转移到位于阿拉巴马州的工厂。丰田说,超过400万台的花冠已经在剑桥生产。
特鲁多表示,这笔投资将有助于确保8000个现有职位和450个新职位的增加。他表示,这笔资金也将提升加拿大汽车行业保持竞争力。
Wynne表示,丰田的举动使得剑桥和伍德斯托克成为RAV4生产的中心,并为其员工队伍投了信任票。
与此同时,丰田还在剑桥的另一个工厂建造了雷克萨斯RX 350和RX 450h两条生产线。
随着另一轮北美自由贸易协定谈判的开始,汽车行业一直是谈判的重点,重点讨论的区域是北美。
丰田最初计划将卡罗拉生产转移到墨西哥。然而,在美国总统唐纳德特朗普威胁要对运往美国的车辆征收“边境税”之后,丰田汽车公司于2018年1月表示,将在位于亨茨维尔的一家新的丰田 – 马自达合资工厂建造一座重新设计的卡罗拉,预计在2021年开放。

Toyota investing $1.4B in Ontario manufacturing plants
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne were in Cambridge, Ont., at a Toyota plant for the announcement of a $1.4-billion a shot in the arm for Ontario’s auto manufacturing sector.
Trudeau said the governments of Canada and Ontario are each kicking in $110 million.
Toyota said the money will be invested in its Cambridge North plant and its West plant in Woodstock, Ont to give it flexibility in its vehicle manufacturing.  The company will also invest $200 million in Canadian research and development over ten years. 
Shifting production
The Woodstock, Ont., plant builds Toyota’s RAV4. 
The Cambridge plant is slated to focus on building the RAV4 after production of the Corolla, which is currently built there, eventually moves to a facility in Alabama. Toyota says more than 4 million Corollas have been built in Cambridge.
Trudeau said the investment will help secure 8,000 existing jobs and the addition of 450 new jobs. He said the funding will also help keep Canada’s auto sector competitive.
Wynne said the move by Toyota makes Cambridge and Woodstock the hub for RAV4 production and gives “a vote of confidence” in the workforce at the facilities.
Toyota also builds the Lexus RX 350 and the RX 450h at another facility in Cambridge.
With another round of NAFTA talks slated to begin next week, the auto sector has been a major point of the negotiations, with heavy focus on the issue of North American content.
Toyota originally planned to move Corolla production to Mexico. However, following a threat by U.S. President Donald Trump to slap on a “border tax” on vehicles shipped into the U.S., Toyota said in Jan. 2018 that it would build a redesigned Corolla at a new Toyota-Mazda joint venture plant in Huntsville, Ala., that is slated to open in 2021.
