Statement Regarding Vehicle Production in Japan Following Earthquakes in Kyushu
Toyota City, Japan, April 17, 2016―Due to parts shortages resulting from the severe earthquakes that struck Japan's island of Kyushu on April 14 and after, Toyota will suspend production on its vehicle assembly lines in stages between April 18 and 23.
Decisions regarding recommencement of operation at plants in Japan will be made on the basis of availability of parts.
We will continue to make all possible efforts to offer support to the residents of Kyushu, and hope for the soonest possible recovery of the affected areas.
