Toyota Plans $531M Expansion at Manufacturing Facility in San Antonio

by Taylor Williams

SAN ANTONIO — Toyota is planning a $531 million expansion of its manufacturing facility in San Antonio, which is informally known as Toyota Texas. The initiative is expected to create more than 400 new full-time jobs.

The centerpiece of the expansion will be the development of a new 500,000-square-foot facility that will be dedicated to producing drivetrain parts such as transmission systems, driveshafts, axles and wheels. A construction timeline was not disclosed.

The Japanese automaker’s San Antonio plant spans about 2,000 acres and has been in operation for nearly two decades. The facility is the exclusive home of the Tundra truck and all-hybrid Sequoia SUV, both of which are assembled on the same production line.

The plant rolled out approximately 181,000 new vehicles in 2023 alone. To date, Toyota’s investment in the facility and the surrounding regional economy is approximately $4.7 billion.

“Toyota Texas’ $531 million investment to expand its manufacturing facility in San Antonio and create over 400 good-paying jobs is a testament to Texas’ unmatched business-friendly environment, low taxes and skilled workforce,” says Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
