This is the first time a Lexus vehicle will be produced in the US. The ES 350 will be assembled at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky in 2015, according to Toyota.

The specialists will produce 50.000 Lexus vehicles per year and the total annual production capacity will reach more than 550.000 vehicles. For those of you who do not know yet, the Lexus Company was born in the US and so it is only logical to bring the model back to the US customers.
