will build its bestselling Camry sedan at a plant in Indiana.

The company and its Fuji Heavy Industries affiliate will spend $230 million to build a Camry production line capable of producing about 100,000 vehicles annually. Camry production at the Subaru of Indiana plant in Lafayette, Ind., will begin next spring.

With this additional capacity and other expansions underway, Toyota will have North American annual production capacity of about 2 million cars and trucks by 2008.

Camrys are now produced at a Toyota plant in Georgetown, Ky. Production there will continue.

Subaru of Indiana built about 120,000 Subaru B9 Tribeca, Outback, Legacy and Baja models in 2005.
