Toyota Motor Corporation has announced that it will temporarily suspend operations at eight plants in Japan, including the Miyata Plant in Fukuoka Prefecture, due to parts procurement difficulties caused by the lockdown in Shanghai, China, where the Corona infection is spreading. These plants will be shut down for six days, from May 16 to May 21. This will affect the production of the NX, a sport-type SUV for the luxury car brand Lexus and other models. Due to the series of shutdowns, the planned global production volume for May, estimated to be around 750,000 units, is expected to decrease to approximately 700,000 units. Source: TNC
