Lexus ES 350 to Become First-Ever American-Made Lexus in 2015
Toyota plans to invest $360 million to upgrade the Georgetown facility, which will start building the ES350 in 2015. The move is expected to add 750 new jobs. The factory will be able to build about 50,000 units of the ES350 each year. Last year, Lexus sold 56,158 ES 350 sedans in the U.S.; Americans have purchased 1.2 million Lexus ES sedans since 1990.
