Woodstock To Produce Electric Vehicle

(TORONTO, ON) – Ontario took another step today toward the plan to become a world-leading clean energy and manufacturing economy.

The Premier was at Toyota’s Woodstock plant to congratulate workers and celebrate Ontario being chosen to produce the Toyota RAV4 EV (electric vehicle). He also thanked the company for its commitment to clean technology innovation and for creating good jobs for Ontario families.

Ontario, in partnership with the Government of Canada, will support the production of the RAV4 EV through their investment in Toyota’s recently announced Project Green Light. The total investment among all partners is helping to protect 6,500 jobs and thousands of supplier jobs throughout the province.

Partnering with industry and supporting the auto sector is part of the government’s plan to create and protect good jobs for Ontario families, strengthen local economies and promote clean technologies.
