Toyota Motor Friday declined to confirm reports in two Japanese newspapers that the company has picked San Antonio for a new truck and SUV plant.
Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff spoke with Toyota officials yesterday. He told the San Antonio Express-News that the company gave no indication a decision has been made.
The president of the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation, Mario Hernandez, said Toyota has not notified the city of any decision.
Cities in Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee are also vying for the plant.
Two Japanese newspapers reported San Antonio is the choice for the automaker's sixth assembly plant in North America. The reports indicate an announcement will come in a few weeks. Toyota spokesman Dan Sieger said the company has not made a decision.
