Daihatsu resumes production at Oita factory for 10 models including mainstay light passenger cars. Daihatsu Motor Co.

Ltd. has suspended operations at all of its domestic automobile factories since late December of last year due to issues with fraudulent acquisition of national certification. The scale of production restarting remains at 40% of the total, including those for vehicle models for which production has yet to be restarted. There are concerns about the long-term impact on small and medium-sized businesses.
