Toyota to Move Forward with Japan Car Production for Most of May

April 15, 2011
April 15, 2011--Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) offers its most-sincere sympathies to those affected by the March 11 Great East Japan Earthquake.

As TMC continues to address its production situation in Japan following the disaster, it has decided that vehicle production from May 10 to June 3 will proceed at approximately 50 percent of normal. TMC will decide on production after this period after assessing the situation of its suppliers and other related companies.

Today’s decision follows TMC’s previously announced decision to produce vehicles at all its Japanese vehicle-production facilities from April 18 to April 27 at approximately 50 percent of normal and for all production facilities to enter their annual spring holiday through May 9.

TMC deeply apologizes to its customers for not being able to build every vehicle to meet their desired specifications due to limited parts.
