Toyota Statement Regarding Status of North American Production

March 23, 2011
NEW YORK, NY (March 23, 2011; Posted at 6:30 PM EDT) We continue to assess our supply base in Japan following the earthquake/tsunami. Today, we communicated to team members, associates and dealers here that some production interruptions in North America are likely. It’s too early to predict location or duration.
 
Currently, the greatest majority of parts for our North America-built vehicles come from approximately 500 suppliers in North America. Also, we continue to receive parts from Japan that were already in the pipeline, limiting the immediate impact. We will continue to work closely with suppliers in North America and Japan to minimize any disruptions to Toyota’s overall North American operations. 
 
Dealerships continue to have an ample supply of vehicles, our ships continue to deliver vehicles to North America, and we are doing all we can to ensure our dealers have products available for customers.
 
We will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available.
