Where Are Lexus Cars Made?

cars in production line

You’ve seen new Lexus vehicles all around Colts Neck, but have you ever wondered where are Lexus cars made? While many Holmdel drivers would guess Japan, the answer is a little more complicated than that. Many models are manufactured in Asia, but a surprising number of models are produced in North America. Let’s take a look at the long, international journey of a new Lexus in the making:

Lexus Production around the World

So, where is Lexus made? Lexus has seven different manufacturing plans in Japan, Canada, and the United States to keep up with consumer demand for these iconic vehicles. Each plant has its own specialization within the new vehicle lineup:

  • Toyota Tahara Plant (Tahara, Japan): Lexus LS, IS, GX, LX, and RC
  • Toyota Yoshiwara Plant (Toyota, Aichi, Japan): Lexus LX
  • Toyota Motor Kyushu (Miyawaka, Fukuoka, Japan): Lexus UX
  • Toyota Miyata Plant (Miyawaka, Fukuoka, Japan): Lexus IS and ES
  • Toyota Motomachi Plant (Toyota, Aichi, Japan): Lexus LC
  • Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada, Inc. (Cambridge, Ontario, Canada): Lexus RX, Lexus RX Hybrid
  • Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky, Inc. (Georgetown, Kentucky, United States): Lexus ES

Lexus Parent Company

You know that Lexus is a heavy-hitter in the automotive industry, but did you know that Toyota is the owner of the Lexus brand? However, the two brands maintain their own unique points of view with distinctive specialties. For example, Toyota is based in the city of Toyota, while Lexus is located in Nagoya. And while Japanese drivers make up the largest segment of Lexus customers, you’ll find Lexus in over 70 different countries and territories with operational centers from Belgium to Texas!
