Due to semiconductor shortages, Toyota will produce less vehicles in October, and here's what's goin ...

Toyota Motor said on Thursday that it intends to produce roughly 800,000 automobiles worldwide in October, leaving about 100,000 people behind its monthly average production estimate due to semiconductor shortages.

The reduction might be seen as a gruesome sign that the chip shortage will continue to derail manufacturing at the world''s largest automobile manufacturer by sales in the second half of the financial year to end March.

The turnaround period for the company to recover from a production problem posed by a shortage in the key vehicle component and greater supply chain entices is regarded as a crucial step.

Toyota hasn''t adjusted its global vehicle production projection for the current fiscal year, despite a record 9.7 million units.

Last month, the Japanese automaker said it intended to produce approximately 900,000 vehicles per month, mainly from September to November.

According to Thursday, the company expects to produce roughly 850,000 automobiles per month in the months from October to December.

Toyota will suspend production for up to 12 days for ten lines in seven domestic companies according to its October production objective.

Automobile manufacturers in Japan have previously suggested that the chip shortage is decreasing, but it''s unclear when it will be resolved.

Despite speculations that the chip supply gap will ease from the second quarter of the financial year onwards, Morgan Stanley MUFG Securities Co said in a report on Wednesday.

Toyota''s competitor Honda Motors said on Thursday that it would reduce vehicle output at two Japanese offices in early October owing to ongoing supply chain and logistical concerns, including the chip shortage.
