The French plant, based in Valenciennes, will increase its production capacity of 240 000 units per year to a maximum capacity of 270 000 in anticipation of the huge demand for the next-generation Yaris.

Toyota will be investing a further €110m in the Valenciennes plant, which is located in the north of France and has been manufacturing the Yaris since January 2001.

To meet the increased production capacity a further 1 000 employees will be added to TMMF's 2 800-strong work force.
