Here are all the Japanese cars made in the USA

Hollis JohnsonMade in Ohio.
  • Dozens of Japanese vehicles are built at plants in the US.
  • The factories are in the southern US and have been in operation in some cases for decades.
  • They employ thousands of Americans.

President Donald Trump made some confusing statements about American and Japanese cars.

Last year, Trump argued that more American vehicles should be sold in Japan, where historically almost no American cars have been on the market. But he also seemed to misunderstand that Japanese automakers have been building vehicles in the US for decades, employing thousands of Americans in the process.

In fact, Toyota and Mazda have announced that they will invest $US1.6 billion and construct a new factory in Alabama, with the goal of hiring 4,000 workers.

We started to wonder if folks know just how many Japanese cars are actually made in the US. It’s a lot. We added it up:
