The expansion is in line with the carmaker’s goal of having exported an aggregate 3 million vehicles from Thailand within the next three to four years. The company is also in the process of transferring some of its research and development (R&D) units from its Japanese headquarters to Thailand.

The current plants have a combined annual capacity of 460,000 units, about 70% of which serve overseas markets.
