A consultant for Toyota Motor Corp. says the automaker won’t retool its plans to build Highlander sport utility vehicles at a plant under construction in north Mississippi, despite the trend of people seeking more fuel-efficient cars.

Dennis Cuneo said the Highlander is a car-based SUV and that “its sales are doing well.”

“The auto industry is a cyclical industry,” Cuneo said Monday. “Toyota believes in the long run this is going to be a good place to manufacture and build vehicles.”
