Charging electric vehicles quickly would place too much pressure on the electricity grid, Yoshikazu Tanaka, chief engineer of Toyota's hydrogen fuel-cell car Mirai, said, according to Reuters. If a car received enough electricity in 12 minutes to travel 310 miles, it would probably consume enough electricity to power 1,000 houses, the news service quoted Tanaka as saying.

09:08 EDTTMToyota to realign North American manufacturing operations
As reported, Toyota plans to invest in a new plant will be built in Guanajuato, Mexico, to support improved competitiveness in North America. The plant will produce Corolla taking into consideration forecasted steady, mid and long-term growth in North America. Building this plant will be one of Toyota's efforts to realign its North American manufacturing operations and begin a new approach to plant building; featuring new work processes, including Toyota New Global Architecture production engineering innovations, and will be a model for global manufacturing. To more efficiently supply high-quality and attractive vehicles, Toyota will continue regional consolidation of North American production based on vehicle body type and size. In 2019, production of the Corolla will be shifted from the plant in Cambridge Ontario, Canada to the newly opened plant in Mexico and the plant in Blue Springs, Mississippi will continue to produce the Corolla; consolidating compact vehicle production to the Southern U.S. and Mexico. TMMC will then focus its production on mid-sized vehicles of higher value, along with Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky and Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana.
09:06 EDTTMToyota to build new plant in Mexico, expand Chinese joint venture
Toyota announced that it will build a new plant in Mexico and expand its joint venture, Guangzhou Toyota Motor Co., in China. These investments are grounded on its plans to construct production lines that are more competitive, with greatly reduced initial investment, improved efficiency, flexibility, environmental performance and safety, the company said. The new plant in Mexico and the expansion in China will be designed to accelerate innovation by implementing new technologies into real production lines. These "simple and slim" production lines can be easily lengthened or shortened depending on demand, with over-head conveyance devices eliminated, compact equipment installed on top of the plant floors, and paint-booths that are smaller. Toyota had previously suspended construction of new plants in order to improve capacity utilization of existing plants and plan for reduced model change-over and new plant construction investment. Currently, total capacity utilization is more than 90% and the initial portion of new simple and slim plant costs, including structure and equipment, is expected to be approximately 40% lower when compared to 2008. Production at the new plant in Mexico is scheduled to start in 2019 and the investment will be approximately $1B. Production at the new plant in China is to start as needed after completion of new line 3 in 2017 and Toyota plans to invest about Y52.5B.
