TOKYO -- Toyota Motor and Subaru are shutting down certain assembly lines in Japan after this week's powerful earthquakes in the northeast disrupted supply chains.
Toyota will halt 18 production lines at 11 of its domestic plants from this coming Monday through Wednesday in a move estimated to affect roughly 20,000 vehicles.
The list released Friday includes the Motomachi and Takaoka plants, two of the company's core factories in the city of Toyota in Aichi Prefecture.
