One thinks of a classic cartoon when investigating the upcoming exploits of Toyota... "Whatcha wanna do tonight, Brain?" "The same thing we do every night, Pinky. Try to take over the world!"
Toyota has announced that it will produce a whopping 10 million vehicles by 2010. As part of the grand scheme, the automaker plans to build an additional 10 manufacturing plants to keep up with the projected three million additional cars Toyota must make to boost production to that point. Toyota currently produces 7.35 million vehicles annually.
Lucky recipients of the plants include Texas, China, India and France, among others to be announced. A jump to 10 million will put Toyota well past General Motors, which currently makes just above 9 million vehicles.
