Toyota to boost North American production ahead of schedule


Toyota says greater parts availability from Japan will have overall North American production will reach approximately 70 per cent of normal levels in June.

Citing “countermeasure activities implemented by affected suppliers,” Toyota will continue to evaluate production model-by-model on a monthly basis, with a goal to return to fully normalized production by late this year.

Models returning to 100 per cent production in June are Avalon, Camry, Corolla, Highlander, Matrix, Sequoia, Sienna, and Venza.  

In Canada, the Corolla, Matrix and RX are all achieving production gains earlier than previously projected.  

The Corolla and Matrix line will return to 100 per cent production. Meanwhile, Lexus RX 350 production will increase to 60 per cent.

RAV4 production will be 25 per cent of normal levels.
