Toyota Motor Corporation temporarily suspends 7 production lines at five domestic plants from April 11 at 11:53 on April 3.
Due to the worldwide decline in demand for automobiles due to the spread of the new coronavirus, Toyota Motor has set seven production lines at five factories in Japan, including the Group's Hino Motors plant, for three days from three days. It has stopped.
What has been stopped from the 3rd,
高 Takaoka Plant and Tsutsumi Plant in Toyota City, Aichi Prefecture,
田 Tahara Plant in Tahara City, Aichi Prefecture,
ト ヨ タ Miyata Plant of Toyota Motor Kyushu, located in Miyawaka City, Fukuoka Prefecture,
日 Hino Motors' Hamura Plant in Hamura City, Tokyo has seven production lines at five domestic plants.
These factories produce hybrid cars and SUVs, but due to the worldwide decline in demand for automobiles due to the spread of the new coronavirus, production lines have been suspended for up to 15 days this month. In total, we will reduce production by approximately 36,000 units.
At the Tsutsumi Plant, where all production lines for the mainstay Prius and Camry models were stopped, no trucks carrying employees or parts were found, and they were quiet.
Toyota has suspended production at all plants in North America and Europe overseas, and has decided to temporarily suspend operation of its Thai plant in Asia from this month. The impact on future business performance is unavoidable.
Suspended domestic production for all eight automobile companies
Due to the spread of the new coronavirus, not only Toyota Motor Corporation, but also all eight automakers, including Honda, have experienced an unusual situation in which car production in Japan is temporarily suspended.
This is because demand for cars has dropped sharply worldwide, and it has become difficult to procure some parts from overseas.
Eligible factories and suspension periods are increasing day by day.
The suspension period varies depending on the factory, but Nissan, Suzuki, Mazda and Mitsubishi Motors apply to all domestic factories.
In addition, SUBARU has decided to suspend at all three factories in Japan and overseas.
Manufacturers have so far announced plans for the end of the major holidays until early next month, but depending on the spread of the new coronavirus, the suspension may be even longer.
