The auto industry is in the midst of an incredible technological evolution. As companies compete and collaborate to make the future of mobility cleaner, safer, and more accessible for current and future generations, Japanese-brand automakers in the U.S. are making major investments in eco-friendly electrification and other advanced vehicle technologies.
Despite a challenging and unprecedented year, cumulative manufacturing investment increased to $55.8 billion, and employment remained steady at 94,960 direct jobs.
The depth and quality of Japanese-brand automakers’ U.S. investments as well as their long-term commitment to supporting the American economy through innovation, workforce development, and environmental stewardship undoubtedly plays an important role in defining this sustained and lasting partnership.
As the nation begins to recover from the recession brought on by the global pandemic, Japanese automakers are making significant contributions that will help drive U.S. growth in critical areas of the economy, such as manufacturing and high-tech research and development (R&D).
