Toyota to Resume Production of the Prius and Two Lexus Hybrids in Japan

Toyota has announced that it is going to resume production of the Prius and the Lexus CT 200h and HS 250h on Monday following the devastating earthquake in Japan on March 11th.

Production of the Prius and Lexus hybrids will resume on Monday, which will be over a week since Toyota restarted production of replacement parts in Japan. There’s no word yet on Toyota’s other models that are produced in Japan.

Although Toyota has resumed some production, Honda announced that its plants in Japan will remain closed until at least April 3rd. Honda’s research and development center in Tochigi is going to take at least a few months to repair.
