Toyota to resume vehicle production at all of its 18 Japanese plants

Toyota will restart car production at all of its 18 plants in Japan from April 18 to 27.

The world’s biggest carmaker said all of its plants in Japan will operate at limited capacity due to parts shortages.

After April 27, all facilities would enter their annual spring holiday through to May 10, and a decision on post-holiday production would be made after assessing the parts supply situation, Toyota said.

Japan’s March 11 quake and tsunami crippled car parts suppliers in the northern part of the country and caused severe parts shortages. The disasters forced Toyota to halt production in Japan from March 14 to 26.
