TOKYO – Multinational car company Toyota was forced to extend the suspension of operations at its plants in Japan in May and June, due to a shortage of components.
When publishing the corresponding schedule, the company stated, “Due to the reductions in the supply of spare parts due to the confinement in Shanghai, we have decided to suspend operations in May and June.”

The global production plan for June is about 850,000 units [250 mil en Japón y 600 mil en el extranjero]. Due to the impact of the semiconductor shortage, we have revised our production plan by tens of thousands of units globally compared to the figures provided to our suppliers at the beginning of the year. ’, said the company.
