Toyota Plans to Start Battery Production in North Carolina in 2025

Toyota plans to commence electric vehicle (EV) battery production at its new facility in North Carolina next year. The facility will manufacture battery packs for the company’s hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and EV vehicles. Toyota’s investments in the facility total $13.9 billion and significant progress has been made since construction began at the end of 2022.

Sean Suggs, President of Toyota Battery Manufacturing in North Carolina, announced that battery production for EVs is slated to begin in the first quarter of next year. The initial batteries will be destined for an electric vehicle manufactured at Toyota’s Georgetown, Kentucky plant. Suggs reports positively on the current state of developments at the facility, highlighting the intensive testing phase involving around 300 team members on-site daily, with an additional 500 employees working at the main headquarters in Greensboro.

Upon completion in 2028, the facility is expected to employ 5,100 people. The North Carolina facility’s production capacity is expected to reach 30 gigawatt-hours of batteries per year, distributed across seven buildings, each housing two production lines. Overall, the facility will encompass ten production lines for future battery electric vehicles (BEVs), plug-in hybrid battery packs, and four lines for producing battery packs for hybrid cars.
