Toyota already operates a broad network of factories in the USA, but Mazda hasn't operated a plant there since exiting a long-running joint venture with Ford Motor Co. several years ago in southeastern MI.

According to news Agency Reuters, which cites its own sources in the company Toyota, the new plant of the joint venture Toyota-Mazda will be built in Alabama, or in the territory of North Carolina. Toyota plans to assemble the Corolla sedan at the plant, while Mazda said it will use the factory to produce new crossover vehicles for the USA market.

The Japanese automakers announced the plans for the new plant in August, saying the move will create 4,000 jobs.

Out of all the states that were considered, only Alabama and North Carolina remain in the running.
