NEW YORK, NY (March 24, 2011; Posted at 7:00 AM EDT) Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) announced today that it will resume Japan production Monday of Prius along with the Lexus CT 200h and HS 250h.
The Prius production will be restarted at TMC’s Tsutsumi plant, while the Lexus CT 200h and HS 250h will resume production at Toyota Motor Kyushu.
Today’s announcement comes one week after TMC in Japan restarted production of replacement parts, and three days after reopening some of its plants which produce parts for overseas production, in the aftermath of a massive earthquake/tsunami that struck the country on March 11.
TMC will continue to assess parts supply as it considers the restart of other vehicle plants in Japan.
We will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available.
