COVID-19 has globally affected the market as a result demand for new vehicles declined globally. To cope with this Toyota intends to make gradual adjustments in production operations at all plants.
In announcement Toyota said, “We have decided to halt production for two days, on May 1 and 11, and plan to reflect the operation days on alternative dates. Additionally, we plan to add non-operating days as well as reducing operation time from double shifts to a single shift from May 12 for some of the plants and production lines producing vehicles for overseas markets”.
Toyota also apologized for the inconvenience caused to its suppliers and people in those regions. He mentioned that operation plans may change by changes in demand and the situation of parts delivery, going forward.
