Honda to cut car output in Japan by up to 40% due to supply woes
Honda Motor Co would reduce car production at two plants in Suzuka by up to 40 percent in early October due to ongoing supply chain and logistical problems.
The carmaker would also cut production at its assembly plant in Saitama prefecture by about 30 percent for the period.
For the rest of September, Honda would reduce vehicle production at Saitama by about 40 percent and at Suzuka by about 20 percent.
There is a persistent shortage of chips and supply chain disruptions in the first half of the business year.
Honda attributed logistics and COVID-19 outbreaks as the cause of parts delivery delays. A number of vehicles, including the Vezel sport utility vehicle, Stepwgn minivan, and Civic compact car, will experience the output cut.
After a previous drop, Honda's production at those two factories returned to normal in June, but the firm indicated previously that it started making changes once more the following month.
