May 25, 2022—Toyota will be suspending production due to shutdowns in Shanghai, China, for the rest of May and through June 2022. 

In a statement, Toyota said that parts supply shortages caused by the Shanghai shutdowns are the motivating factor for this decision. 

"The shortage of semiconductors, spread of COVID-19 and other factors are making it difficult to look ahead, but we will continue to make every effort possible to deliver as many vehicles to our customers at the earliest date." Toyota said in the statement. 

Toyota also shared that their global production plan for the month of June includes around 850,000 units. Of these units, 250,000 units are for Japan and 600,000 go overseas.

"Due to the impact of semiconductor shortages, we have adjusted our production plan by tens of thousands of units globally from the number provided to our suppliers at the beginning of the year." Toyota said.
