Toyota Outlines Timeline for Restoring Normal Production

April 25, 2011

NEW YORK, NY – Toyota said it plans to ramp up global production in July in Japan and August in North America, and that all of its models will be back to normal production levels by November or December 2011. The company said the one-month difference in start dates is due to the time required to ship parts from Japan or overseas plants.

Currently, manufacturing plants in Japan are working at 50 percent of capacity due to parts availability, while those in North America are operating at 30 percent of capacity because of the parts supply situation.

“To all the customers who made the decision to buy a vehicle made by us, I sincerely apologize for the enormous delay in delivery,” said TMC President Akio Toyoda at a press conference in Japan announcing the normalization timeline.
