Tokyo, July 24, 2013; Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) announces that its vehicle production subsidiary in Indonesia, PT. Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indonesia (TMMIN), is to start producing engines for vehicles other than the IMV* series at a new engine plant due to go online in the first half of 2016. The site for the new plant, near TMMIN's
Karawang plants, was acquired last year.

The new engine plant will have an annual production capacity of 216,000 engines. Approximately 23 billion yen is to be invested in the plant, for which approximately 400 new employees are to be hired.
