Toyota To Make Hybrids In Australia

TOKYO (AP) - Carmaker Toyota has announced it will begin making
the Camry hybrid at plants in Australia and Thailand.

In a statement Tuesday, the Japanese carmaker announced the move
is part of its plan to produce "green cars" around the world.

The Australian and Thai plants are only Toyota's second and
third overseas production point for the Camry hybrid after its
Georgetown, Ky., plant in the U.S.

The only other nation where Toyota manufactures its hybrids
besides Japan is China.

With the popularity of hybrids and other ecological technology,
other automakers are aggressively trying to catch up with Toyota's
lead in hybrids.
