Toyota has begun exporting its U.S.-assembled Venza crossover to its distributors in South Korea, making up a portion of over 130,000 vehicles the Japanese automaker plans on exporting this year.
The Venzas being exported to South Korea are being produced in Georgetown, Kentucky, Toyota’s largest manufacturing plant outside of Japan. This also marks the first time the U.S.-assembled Venza will make its way to a country outside of North America.
Venza exports to South Korea are initially forecasted to be around 600 annually and will ship from Oxnard, California. Other exports from Toyota include the Avalon, which is also produced in Kentucky, Indiana-produced Highlander and Sequoia, and the Texas-produced Tacoma and Tundra.
