Toyota Motor has decided to suspend production at three plants in Thailand from early next month. In response to the decline in global demand due to the spread of the new coronavirus, Japanese automakers are suspending production in Thailand, the largest car-producing country in Southeast Asia.
According to officials, Toyota Motor has decided to suspend production at three plants in Thailand for about 10 days from early to middle of next month.
The main reason is that global demand for new vehicles is declining due to the spread of the new coronavirus.
In Thailand, Honda will stop producing cars at two factories for about one month from the 27th to next month, and Mazda will also stop production for about 10 days from this month.
Thailand is the largest car-producing country in Southeast Asia, where production bases of the automobile industry are concentrated, mainly by Japanese companies. Last year, it produced more than 2 million vehicles for domestic and overseas markets.
However, sales of new cars in Thailand were down 17% last month compared to the same month in the previous year, and exports were sluggish. Production stoppages are spreading in Thailand.
