Toyota North American Production at 100% Sooner Than Expected


USA Today - September 13, 2011

Toyota’s North Amer­i­can pro­duc­tion is back up to 100% of nor­mal, and much soon­er than the ear­li­er fore­cast of Novem­ber or Decem­ber. Eight of the 12 mod­els pro­duced in North Amer­i­ca were at 100% pro­duc­tion in June: Aval­on, Cam­ry, Corol­la, Matrix, High­lander, Sien­na, Sequoia and Ven­za. Now the remain­ing four North Amer­i­can-pro­duced mod­els, Taco­ma, Tun­dra, RAV 4 and Lexus RX 350, are back to 100% as well. Accord­ing to Toy­ota, these 12 mod­els rep­re­sent about 70% of the company’s U.S. sales.
