Earlier it was planned that the Corolla model would be produced at this enterprise, but now the Japanese have changed their plans. “This is a reaction to the changing demands of the market, as well as to the growing demand for light pick-ups and crossovers, sales of which have reached record levels,” the press service of the Japanese brand reports.
There is practically no information about the new product – all we know is that it will be a car developed from scratch that will join the CH-R, RAV4, Highlander, 4Runner, Sequoia and Land Cruiser models.

Mazda also plans to produce a new crossover at the new plant that will become a newcomer to the North American market. Most likely, we are talking about a compact CX-30, which debuted in March 2019. It is known that the novelty will go on sale in 2020, while the construction of MTMUS will be completed only in 2021.
