Toyota Board Votes to Close NUMMI

According to the San Jose Mercury News, Toyota has made a decision to close NUMMI:

Toyota Motor Corp. plans to end production in March 2010 at a California joint venture where it has built vehicles with General Motors, the company said Thursday.
The decision would mean the shutdown of the sole auto assembly plant on the West Coast if no other carmaker emerges to keep it going.

Toyota’s board voted early Thursday to end the company’s production contract at the Fremont.-based New United Motor Manufacturing Inc., spokeswoman Cindy Knight confirmed.

Update: Here is a video of a news report on the decision from ABC-7 in San Francisco:
