Toyota Indiana Assembly Plant Celebrates 4 Millionth Vehicle

Toyota Highlander Hybrid

The Toyota Indiana assembly plant has reached a new milestone: their 4 millionth vehicle (a Blizzard Pearl Highlander Hybrid.)

Toyota is happy to announce that one of its most productive assembly plants has reached a new milestone. The Toyota Indiana assembly plant recently produced its 4 millionth vehicle after a Blizzard Pearl Highlander Hybrid rolled off the assembly line earlier this month. With this 4 millionth vehicle, the plant has officially produced more vehicles than are registered in the state of Indiana.

“The community has shown incredible support since day one,” said Norm Bafunno, Toyota Indiana president. “This 4 millionth vehicle is only possible because of the great team effort of our team members, suppliers, and citizens of this wonderful community we all call home.”

 Toyota Indiana is currently known as being one of Toyota’s biggest exporting plants. Just last year, the plant exported over 42,000 vehicles to more than 20 countries, an outstanding number. Since it’s founding almost 19 years ago, the Toyota Indiana assembly plant has produced the Sequoia SUV, Sienna minivan, Tundra pickup truck, Highlander SUV, and Highlander Hybrid SUV.

Tips & Tricks to Save Money at the Pump

Save Money at the Pump
If we’re being honest, one of the things that we dislike the most is shelling out money on gasoline. Although it can seem that gas is getting more and more expensive, we have compiled a list of great tips that will help you save money at the pump.

1)      Slow and Steady Wins the Race: well…sort of. By slow and steady we simply mean don’t slam your breaks and accelerate like you’re a drag racer every chance you get. If you’re driving on the highway, spending extra time on cruise control can cut down on fuel consumption

1)      Know when and Where to Fuel Up: Smartphone apps such as GasBuddy can really help you save money at the pump. In addition, gas prices begin to rise the closer you are to the weekend or a holiday.

2)      Proper Maintenance is a Must: Routine maintenance can sometimes be a hassle, but a perfectly running car gets better gas mileage.

4)      Don’t Carry Extra Baggage: extra weight in the back of your car can really cause your gas mileage to decrease. Make sure your car is a little lighter to help make your wallet a little heavier.

We know this is only a few, but we really hope that these tips will help you save money at the pump. If you’re looking for an even bigger way to save you some cash, stop by Dick Dyer Toyota and take a look at our Toyota hybrid inventory.
