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.
As for the suspension of operation due to the impact of the damage caused by the heavy rain in Aichi Prefecture and its surroundings on parts procurement, we have decided to resume operations at 2 plants and extend the suspension at 1 plant in Japan. The number of units affected by this decision is approximately 1,000, and combined with the number announced after July 27, the total number of units affected by the heavy rain damage is approximately 5,200.
As 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, we 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.
The following is the revised domestic operations suspension schedule for August.
