Toyota says it will scale back production by 100,000 vehicles during October due to semiconductor shortages, reports CBT News.

The news could be a sign that the semiconductor chip shortage will continue to be an issue for manufacturers in the second half of the financial year, which ends in March 2023, reports CBT, adding that many companies hope to bounce back from production shortfalls caused by the shortage and supply chain issues over the past year.

Toyota plans to suspend production for up to 12 days for ten lines at seven of its domestic factories. Honda is also facing reduced outputs as a result of the chip shortage. The rival company announced on Thursday that it would reduce car production output by 40% at two of its Japanese plants in October due to ongoing supply chain and logistical issues.
