  • JAPAN EARTHQUAKE > LATEST UPDATES ON HONDA, TOYOTA AND NISSAN

    This week we already posted a news that the earthquake in Japan may affect Proton’s supply chain, in particular to the Proton Inspira, which is based on the Mitsubishi Lancer with around 80% Japan-sourced content for now. But there is no immediate effect on Proton.For today we will show you the updates on Honda, Toyota and Nissan in Japan.

    Honda

    Production at the Sayama Plant and Suzuka Factory will be suspended until April 3. Hondas made in Japan include the U.S. Fit, Insight, CR-Z, Civic Hybrid, Acura TSX, and Acura RL.

    Honda Insight

    Honda reports that most suppliers are ready or are almost ready to resume production. Until all are ready, Honda is helping suppliers prepare for production and trying to find other sources for those parts.

    “Honda will make decisions based on the recovery of Japanese society as a whole as well as the supply of parts,” a Honda press release states.

    Toyota

    A week ago, Toyota restarted production of replacement parts. Three days ago, the automaker reopened some plants that make parts for overseas production.

    Toyota Prius

    Toyota plans to resume production of the Prius, Lexus CT 200h, and Lexus HS 250h on March 28.

    The launch of the new Prius MPV has been delayed.

    Nissan

    Nissan Leaf production already resumes, though the automaker notes that “the ability to sustain production will depend to a large degree on the frequency of rolling blackouts due to electricity shortages.”

    Nissan Leaf

    Nissan is considering the possibility of having its Tennessee engine plant increase production of VQ V-6 engines. The V-6s may be shipped to Japan to compensate for lost production at the company’s Iwaki engine plant, halfway between Tokyo and Sendai, where earthquake and tsunami damage was most severe.

    Nissan and Infiniti dealers are being told that May ordering will follow a normal schedule.
