According to Reuters, people familiar with the matter pointed out that Toyota was forced to suspend production multiple times at a factory in Mexico in February and March this year because local labor shortages affected the output of suppliers.
Toyota plans to produce 10 million vehicles this year but production may be facing bottlenecks.
Two people familiar with the matter said Toyota Motor Corp.\’s plant in Tijuana, Mexico, which builds the Tacoma pickup truck, was idle for a total of 19 days in February and March.
They said technical problems at the plant also contributed to the shutdown.
Toyota is currently working with some suppliers to ease the pressure.
Still, some parts manufacturers are struggling to maintain production due to worker shortages, a person familiar with the matter said.
Supply disruptions are the latest headache for the Japanese manufacturing giant, which has also been grappling with the fallout from a safety testing certification scandal at subsidiary Daihatsu and respective governance issues at two other subsidiaries.
Two people familiar with the matter said the scandals prompted the automaker to delay U.S. electric vehicle production by six months to around June 2026.
Toyota Motor North America responded: \”Toyota North America plants continue to experience intermittent production delays due to supply chain disruptions.
To minimize the impact our teams are working hard to do everything possible to reduce any inconvenience to our customers.
According to a letter from Toyota to its North American supplier network in late April, the automaker acknowledged that \”frequent production pauses\” had caused \”inconvenience and concern.\”
