Can that be proved or is it just lure?

Hyundai Sonata

When the Sonata started sales in the US for 1989, they built a plant in Quebec, as they expected sales to boom. So 1989 Sonatas were built in South Korea. The plant opened in 1990, and about 2/3 of 1990 Sonata sales were made there, the rest in Korea. For 1991 most were made in Quebec, and by 1992-93 they were all Quebec cars. Sales were slow, so they closed the plant in Quebec down in 1994.


Bromont's plant closed in 1993, despite what Wikipedia says :wink:

Toyota RAV4

For the first two generations, the US market RAV4's were all made in Japan.

  1. 1995-2000 [XA10]
    2001-2005 [XA20]


For the third and forth generations, a Canadian plant was opened in Woodstock, Ontario starting with the 2009 model year, but sales have been so strong, that imports from Japan continued as well. For instance, Toyota sold over 352,000 RAV4 for the 2016 calendar year, but of that total, only 187,000 are listed as North American built, which means that 165,000 were imported from Japan for sale in the USA.

USA RAV4's for these generations could be made in either Canada or Japan:
  1. 2006-2012 [XA30]
    2013-present [XA40]
