    This is a low value-add plant for Toyota. Had they been assembling Prii or Lexi the outcome would not have been so predictable. The math of this situation is, in a nutshell, exactly what every manufacturer (left) in the US has done, and all have reached the same conclusion. Why deal with the high labor costs, ridiculous laws and restrictions, high taxes and expensive land here in the California when a much more agreeable environment exists practically anywhere else in the US? And where the manufacturing goes, the engineering is soon to follow.
