Toyota global output record high for Nov

Toyota Motor Corp said Monday that its global output for November rose 1.5 percent from a year earlier to 833,104 vehicles, hitting a record high for that month.

While four other Japanese carmakers, including Nissan Motor Co and Honda Motor Co, logged declines due to a supply-chain crunch for automobile parts caused by the COVID-19 outbreak in China and other factors, Toyota marked an increase for the fourth straight month, saying the supply issue for the company had eased.

Toyota’s overseas output rose 3.8 percent to 566,930, a record figure for November, with North American production increasing by 5.9 percent. But production in China fell 11.1 percent due to parts shortages.

Total global production by eight major Japanese carmakers, including Toyota, fell 4.3 percent to 2.1 million units, according to data released by the companies. Production by Honda fell 12.2 percent to 325,996 as it had to temporarily halt factory operations in the central Chinese city of Wuhan.
