Toyota will assemble hybrid vehicles in the US.
Akihiko Saito, executive vice president in charge of production, confirmed the move but declined to say which hybrids will be assembled in the US or when and where production will start.
Toyota is expanding its hybrid lineup. The Lexus RX 400h SUV and the Toyota Highlander SUV will be sold with hybrid engines.
The next-generation Toyota Camry also will have a hybrid version, the company says.
