OTTAWA (Reuters) – Toyota will invest hundreds of millions of dollars to produce its Lexus NX luxury crossover vehicle at a Canadian plant, government and industrial sources said on Monday.
The company will produce the Lexus NX and the hybrid version of the NX at the Cambridge plant, a government source said, while two industry sources familiar with the matter said a new vehicle would be produced there without saying which one.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and a top Toyota executive are scheduled to make the announcement later at the Toyota factory in Cambridge, Ontario, the sources said.
