Toyota handed over the Aygo X to its first Czech customer on April 12, 2022. The Japanese carmaker has invested more than CZK 4.5bn to launch production of the new Aygo X and Yaris models at the Kolín plant.

Koreatsu Aoki, president of Toyota Motor Manufacturing Czech Republic, said that despite the ongoing pandemic or difficulties with the supply of parts, especially semiconductors, the expansion has been completed with the addition of new buildings and the installation of new equipment. The Aygo X compact urban crossover, based on the Toyota New Global Architecture platform, will replace the second-generation Aygo, which was produced in Kolín from 2014 until the end of 2021.
