Default re: Toyota to cut India output by 70%. EDIT on Pg 2 : To resume operations by 20th May

There is already another thread running on Honda's announcement to cut down production by 50%. Maybe all these threads should be merged into one something like "After Effects of the Japanese Natural Disaster on Motoring World" where many things could be discussed parallelly.

I would be surprised if there is ANY Japanese manufacturer that is not effected.

The Fukushima reactors provided a substantial fraction of Japan's total grid power, especially in the industrial region around Tokyo, and not only are those out of action so are several other nuclear power plants (though the latter may resume soon if they haven't already)

In addition there has been severe infrastructure damage - train lines, transmission lines everything is severely damaged and while Japan is a very resilient country it is also an old (as in people's age) country which has not been very welcoming to foreigners throughout his history including recent history. Repairing infrastructure damage is tricky anyway, but more so under these conditions.

I think the delays will last more than "a few months" being reported.

that may be because while a lot of Maruti Suzuki technology comes from Japan, not many manufactured components do (compared to other guys). This has been a necessity given the price sensitive segments in which Maruti in India and Suzuki in the rest of world plays - It has also turned out to be a virtue in the specific tragedy.

Typically Toyota! Under-promise and over deliver! Operations to be resumed earlier than expected, on the 20th of May, 2011

Quote:
Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd. (TKM) today announced that it will resume normal operations earlier than expected. In the wake of disruption in supplies the company had earlier suspended production on Mondays and Fridays between April 25 and June 4.

TKM’s parts sourcing is getting back on track, production will return back to normal levels starting 20th May, 2011. Plans are afoot to recover loss of production and reduce the waiting period. The plant will function on all weekdays and some of the non - working Saturdays.

Mr. Sandeep Singh, Deputy Managing Director, Marketing, added “We are now all set to launch the Etios Liva. The launch will be as per schedule in the last week of June.

So finally Toyota has announced that their production is back on full swing. I saw this add in TOI today. I wish Honda also learn something from their Japanese counterpart and bring back the production to full capacity ASAP.

Absolutely brillaint. No wonder why their products rule the top slots in sales charts. They deserve to be there for every right reasons. I guess this is the right attitude of a manufacture - Customer First. Let other manufacturers take a cue from them !
