The Next Lexus NX Compact Luxury SUV Will Be Built In Canada

Toyota and Lexus deliver on their commitment to Canada by confirming that the Lexus NX will be assembled here as of 2022.

Last week, Toyota announced that they had big news concerning Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada (TMMC) in Canada. As we outlined, indications pertaining to an upcoming announcement in the Canadian car business has generally led to bad news. Not so with Toyota!

Lexus and Canada have enjoyed a long and rewarding relationship for more than 15 years. Back in 2003, TMMC became the first Toyota facility outside of Japan entrusted to produce Lexus vehicles. Said vehicles were and are the Lexus RX and Lexus RX Hybrid of which so far 1.3 million have been produced.

“Together with the company’s recent investments in our facilities, today’s announcement demonstrates the tremendous amount of trust that Toyota has in the Team Members here at TMMC,” TMMC President Fred Volf added.  “It has been an honour to be producing a Lexus model, and now we’re being trusted to produce two of them.”

The second model in the well-received and popular compact NX SUV introduced in late 2014 as a 2015 model year vehicle. Production of the next Lexus will begin in 2022 likely coinciding with the next generation of the SUV.

Toyota has invested heavily to convert its North and West Cambridge, Ontario plants to the company’s Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform. As SUV demand is expected to continue to rise, Toyota will be better positioned to serve its dealers and customers.
