This move comes after the Japanese automaker stated it would invest $240 million to add a production line dedicated to hybrid powertrains at its facility in Buffalo, West Virginia. As per an AP report, the latest upgrade involves an expense of $73 million at the factory to annually assemble an estimated 1,20,000 rear motor stators which is a key component in electric motors.
