Toyota Continues Japan Vehicle Production Halt, Resumes Parts Production

March 22, 2011

NEW YORK - Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) has decided to continue the vehicle-production halt started on March 14 at all plants in Japan (including subsidiary vehicle manufacturers) through March 26. The company has yet to make a decision to resume vehicle production in Japan.
 
Toyota stated that its parts plants in Japan resumed production of replacement parts for vehicles already on the market on March 17 and resumed the production of parts for overseas production on March 21.
 
Regarding Toyota's North American operations, the company stated that the impact is limited. All 13 North American vehicle and engine plants are running normally, although the automaker curtailed overtime to conserve parts that come from suppliers in Japan. Toyota said its U.S. dealership inventories “remain generally good.”
