Toyota in Brexit boost with pledge to build next Auris in the UK

Mar 01, 2018 - City A.M.

TOYOTA announced yesterday it will build its new generation Auris model at its Burnaston factory in Derbyshire.

The majority of the engines for the new model will be sourced from the firm's Deeside factory in north Wales, which it said will secure 3,000 jobs across the two sites.

The government said the commitment was secured in part thanks to its investment of more than £20m last year to support the installation of a new production platform in Burnaston, worth over £240m.
