After the enormous devastation caused by the massive Tsunami that hit the East Coast of Japan on 11th March 2011, slowly but steadily, life in Japan is getting back to normalcy. Earlier today, world’s largest carmaker, Toyota Motors which had shut all its manufacturing units in Japan since the Tsunami struck, announced to start the production of 3 hybrid cars from 28th of this month.
Toyota Motors will start the production of their Lexus CT200h, Lexus HS250h and Prius hybrid cars in Japan soon at their unit in Tsutsumi (Central Japan) and Kyushu (South Japan). A total of 12 manufacturing and assembling plants of Toyota stopped functioning since 11th March due to unavailability of workers and electricity.
Toyota spokeswoman stated, “We will monitor the situation of parts availability carefully in deciding the duration of production.” Toyota has already suffered production loss of 140,000 cars till date due to the recent disaster.
