After the busy weeks at 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, Toyota is now facing one of the most terrifying problems: supply shortage. The 2012 Yaris, 2012 Toyota Camry, 2012 Toyota Avensis, and even the Prius series are all ready to hit the market. ButToyotastill struggling to maintain the production line-up as well as to make sure to keep the supply available. In certain point, multi-tasking is never easy, and we thinkToyotastarts to take its toll on the supply shortage.
Starting this week, Toyota Motor Corporation will continue the full production of the North American facility and also expanding output of small engines which will be the core of its eco steps.
Steve St.Angelo – the Executive President for North American engineering and manufacturing Toyota Motor Corp. stated, “All plants and suppliers in North America are at full speed, and most are working overtime. Our parts problems are now behind us.”
In order to keep up with their full production goal,Toyotawill add 240 new employees to be placed in theHuntsville–Alabamafacility which focusing on making the four-cylinder engines. This facility also produces six- and eight-cylinder engines and will be ready to produce small new units not late than this month.
Since the massive earthquake and tsunami back in March,Toyotaand other Japanese carmakers have been struggling to fulfill the demand and keep the stockpiles of the cars which forToyota, they need more supplies for Prius hybrid. From the online financial report, theUSautomotive industry has risen more than 10%, whileToyotamanaged to achieve 7.8% less vehicles than a year ago. Let’s hopeToyotacan back on the track soon because theUSpricing for Toyota Prius series has just announced.
