Toyota revving Prius production to meet demand

Posted Wednesday, May 27, 2009, 1:37 pm in Employee News

Toyota Motor Corp. is revving up production of its hit Prius to meet better-than-expected demand for the latest version of the world’s top-selling hybrid, the Japanese automaker said Wednesday and the Associated Press reported.

“We are considering steps to increase production to meet demand,” Toyota spokesman Paul Nolasco told the AP. Toyota, the world’s biggest automaker, declined comment on public broadcaster NHK TV’s report that overtime was resuming at its factories, the news service said.

Toyota was among the Japanese automakers forced to halt production at its assembly plants earlier this year to reduce production and lower inventories after being hammered by the global financial crisis, the AP said. But production has returned to normal at Toyota and other plants, starting from this month. (Associated Press/Detroit News)
