Vehicle assembly at Toyota’s 14 plants in Japan has been suspended indefinitely due to a technical problem. These plants represent a third of the company’s world production: 13.5 thousand vehicles per day.

Vehicle assembly at all Toyota plants in Japan halted indefinitely due to breakdowns

Toyota announced the complete closure of 14 auto manufacturing plants in Japan. The reason was a technical failure: the company cannot order spare parts, writes Reuters.

Toyota’s 14 Japanese plants account for a third of the company’s global output. In units, this is equivalent to 13.5 thousand vehicles per day, not counting Daihatsu and Hino.

Toyota was unable to give a timeframe for reopening the factories.

Since the start of 2023, Toyota has increased production 29% year-on-year, even though it has been cutting vehicle production for the past two years due to chip shortages.
