Japanese automakers in Thailand are resuming production in the inundated country, all except Honda.
Toyota is back at normal levels in Thailand, Japan, and the U.S. Production in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and South Africa is still affected by missing parts originating from Thailand. This should even out soon. Toyota had said that it had lost 150,000 vehicles through November 12.
The Nikkei [sub] says that Honda lost nearly 100,000 units of production through Monday. Honda has no idea when it will open its submerged plant .
The Nikkei also says that Mazda will restart pickup truck output on Nov. 28 at its joint venture plant with Ford Motor Co.
Parts problems could persist for a while. Rohm, a chipmaker for automotive use, told The Nikkei that output will not return to normal until next spring.
