Based on an extensive review with its supplier and logistics network, Toyota has said it will postpone the ramp-up of its North American manufacturing operations from the week of 4 May to the week of 11 May.

As previously stated, Toyota said it “intends to gradually resume its manufacturing operations in compliance with federal health and safety guidelines, and local and state ordinances where our facilities are located. The health and safety of our employees and stakeholders remain a top priority and we have implemented new protocols at all of our North American manufacturing plants to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to follow all safety guidelines and monitor vehicle demand as we carefully ramp up production.”

Volkswagen of America announced last week that it was putting back the restart of production at its assembly plant in Chattanooga amid concerns about the readiness of the company’s NA supply base.
