Japan’s automakers have had to delay or slow the production due to the earthquake in March. Honda has already announced that many of its models will be in tight supply through this summer and the all-new 2012 CR-V will be delayed at least a month. Toyota is also experiencing many of the same issues, but if you are a Prius fan and have been eagerly awaiting the introduction of the 2012 Prius V MPV, Toyota has announced that it is still on track for this fall.
Although the Prius V is still on track for a fall introduction here in the U.S., the Japan-market Prius Alpha has been delayed.
