Filed under: Budget , Europe , Plants/Manufacturing , Hatchback , Toyota Our tiniest Toyota ( Scion iQ notwithstanding) is about to get a little French flair. The Japanese automaker announced Thursday that its Toyota Motor Manufacturing France facility would begin building Yaris models destined for North America – specifically, the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. This will mark the first time in history that Toyota has exported vehicles to North America from Europe. Initially, Toyota will export roughly 25,000 Yaris models to North American markets from France each year. In order to handle this additional production, Toyota Motor Manufacturing France has invested 10 million euro into its French facility. Despite being somewhat of a snooze-fest ( it’s a car! ), the Yaris carries on in North America with a 106-horsepower 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, with prices starting at $14,370 for the three-door and $15,395 for the five-door, not including $795 for destination.

Filed under: Car Buying , Truck , Work , Ford , GM , Honda , Hummer , Nissan , Toyota , Ram PickupTrucks.com has taken another look at the sales of its favorite vehicle bodystyle as part of an ongoing series . According to registration data from R.L. Polk, the Toyota Tacoma easily took the crown as America’s best-selling mid-sized pickup, with 133,477 units rolling into new homes in 2012. For comparison, the second-place Nissan Frontier only saw 50,566 registrations. We feel compelled to point out that before Ford pulled the plug on its ancient Ranger , the company was moving some 75,000 units per year. That number had shriveled to 15,662 by 2012, which was still enough to surpass the Honda Ridgeline . Interestingly enough, one person brought home a brand-new Hummer H3T as well. But mid-sized trucks represent only a fraction of total pickup sales. Dealers sold a total of 241,471 midsizers last year compared to 988,326 half-tons. That segment was dominated by General Motors with 533,814 sales followed by Ford at 478,204.
