As the supply chain issues brought on by the pandemic continue, automakers struggle with meeting their production targets. The latest victim is Toyota, who will be expanding the production halts at some of their factories in Japan.

The report comes from Reuters, who cites a press release by the Japanese automaker. The stoppage will cut output by 9,000 vehicles and will affect production of Lexus models as well as the Land Cruiser, a vehicle whose supply is already struggling to keep up with demand.

This is all happening at the same time as Toyota is trying to make up for prior, more serious supply chain disruptions in places like Vietnam and Malaysia. An earlier report stated that Toyota had even gone so far as to ask suppliers to make up for lost production so they could build an extra 97,000 vehicles between December and the end of March, with some considering running additional weekend shifts to meet the request.

The automaker has set an annual production target of 9 million vehicles by March, which was reduced from the original target of 9.3 million units a few months back. A Toyota spokesperson was cautiously optimistic of hitting that goal, saying that “We would like to maintain 9 million units, but we will keep a close eye on the situation.”
