Although many automakers have established production facilities in China, Lexus has decided not to go down this route because of quality concerns.

Lots of car manufacturers such as Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, GM, Ford and Audi either already have factories in China or will open up in the near future but Lexus says for the moment they will not begin production China because they don't want to prioritize quantity over quality.

In other words, Lexus is afraid setting up shop in China would decrease the build quality of its vehicles which is something they want to avoid since quality is what customers are looking for in a Lexus, according to company boss Tokuo Fukuichi. As a consequence, Lexus will continue to import cars (at high prices) from Japan to PRC, the firm's second largest market after United States.
