We at Toyota would like to again apologize for the repeated adjustments to our production plan due to the parts shortage resulting from the spread of COVID-19, and for causing considerable inconvenience to our customers, who have been waiting for the delivery of vehicles, suppliers, and other parties concerned.
In last month’s production plan, we announced that the average monthly production plan for the next three months (September through November) would be approximately 900,000 units. However, due to the impact of semiconductor shortages, the planned global production volume for October is expected to be approximately 800,000 units (approx. 250,000 units in Japan and 550,000 units overseas).
The global production plan for October through December is planned to average approximately 850,000 units per month. This plan is based on careful confirmation of parts supply and the personnel structures and facility capacities of our suppliers.
However, it remains difficult to look ahead due to semiconductor shortages, the spread of COVID-19, and other factors. We will continue to make every effort to deliver as many vehicles as possible to our customers at the earliest date while closely examining the situation.
The production forecast for the fiscal year remains unchanged at approx. 9.7 million.
The following is the revised domestic operations suspension schedule for October.
