Toyota Continues Production of Prius, Lexus Hybrids

April 13, 2011

NEW YORK - Toyota Motor Corp. announced April 6 that it will continue production of the Prius along with the Lexus CT 200h and HS 250h at two plants in Japan, although at less than capacity. 

Toyota also announced that it will continue production in Japan of replacement parts and parts for overseas production. 

Assembly of the three hybrid vehicles in Japan resumed on March 28, a little over two weeks after the devastating earthquake and tsunami struck northeastern Japan. Production of Japan-sourced parts for overseas plants resumed on March 14 and production in Japan of replacement parts needed to service Toyota, Lexus and Scion vehicles resumed on March 17. 

Toyota's 13 North American vehicle assembly and engine plants are continuing to operate on normal two-shift schedules, although overtime and Saturday production have been canceled. 

Toyota said it is continuing to assess the parts situation before making additional production decisions.
