Toyota Motor Corp said that it plans an additional domestic factory line production suspension in June and July due to semiconductor shortages and a COVID-19 outbreak at one of its suppliers.
Today’s announcement is the third time the world’s largest automaker by sales has adjusted its June production plans, which are down about 12% from its original plan.
It now said it would produce 750,000 vehicles worldwide for the month.
It did not disclose how many vehicles it aims to produce for July.
Toyota previously cited parts shortages caused by COVID-19 lockdowns in China and a shortage of semiconductors as reasons for its production changes.
