Toyota Motor Corporation has lowered its production forecast for the month of July 2022 owing to parts shortage resulting from the spread of COVID-19.
The company in a statement said: “We at Toyota would like to again apologize for the repeated adjustments to our production plans due to the parts shortage resulting from the spread of COVID-19, and for causing considerable inconvenience to our customers, who have been waiting for the delivery of vehicles, suppliers, and other parties concerned.”
The company decided to make additional production suspension adjustments to some domestic plants due to the difficulty of procuring parts from a supplier caused by heavy rain damage mainly in Aichi Prefecture.
The number of affected units will be approximately 4,000 units.
It remains difficult to look ahead due to the shortage of semiconductors and the spread of COVID-19, there is a possibility that the production plan may be lower.
However, company will examine the parts supply closely to minimize sudden decreases in production, and continue to make every effort possible to deliver as many vehicles to our customers at the earliest date.
