Lexus ES 350 Manufacturing

The first USA-built Lexus ES 350 will come off the assembly line this afternoon at the new Lexus Georgetown plant in Kentucky.

Over 750 new workers have received 1.5 million hours in training to produce the ES 350, which will be built on a new assembly line that cost an estimated $350 million USD.

The plant is expected to manufacture 50,000 ES 350s a year. Lexus will continue to produce the ES 300h hybrid at the Kyushu plant in Japan.
