The Toyota Avensis which is built at Toyota's Derbyshire plant will be exported to its mother country. The factory already exports cars to 47, countries. However, it must be seen as a fantastic achievement that the British-made Toyota is being exported to Japan. Well done to the boy's and girls at the Burnaston factory. For discussion. Why is importing a car that originated in their homeland, a viable proposition for the Japanese? What factors (hinderances or incentives) can make the importing of its own brand attractive to Toyota? Are the workers at the Derbyshire factory highly efficient, or perhaps underpaid? Perhaps raw materials costs and subsidies play a part in all of this?
