The inevitable march to American-made “imports” continues, as one Toyota official recently declared his desire to see every single Toyota sold in America to be a made-in-USA product.

Although Toyota currently makes about 70 percent of its Stateside product domestically, Bill Fay, Vice President and General Manager of the company’s American arm, said he’d ideally like to see that number expand. Fay spoke to the Detroit Free Press regarding shifting production

“Our intention is clearly to grow that 70% over time…Short term, we are not going to build everything in North America, especially (when) you consider Lexus, which we are shifting more slowly. “Whether we ever totally get there, I don’t know…”

Next up on Toyota’s agenda is a shift in Corolla production, which would see 100 percent of the compact sedans made in Canada or the USA. Concerns over unfavorable wages aren’t the sole reason behind the move either; a rapidly aging workforce and negative population growth means that finding workers for car factories is an increasingly difficult task.
