Toyota to build Corolla sedans in US, not Mexico

Tacoma truck supply will grow sooner under new North American output plan

NAGOYA, Japan -- Toyota Motor intends to produce the Corolla at a newly announced U.S. factory, shifting plans for the compact car away from a plant under construction in Mexico that instead will be used for the Tacoma pickup truck, President Akio Toyoda said Friday.

The new American plant will be built jointly with compatriot Mazda Motor.
