Wednesday's temblors in northeastern Japan impact auto industry

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.
Our Solterra orders will be a couple of days late.

I haven't heard the Solterra listed as one of the models affected, nor the Motomachi plant. So, that's encouraging.
This article:


mentions that the Solterra is also affected.

Looks like this will be a longer shut down than the three projected days. Japan is having power issues:


"Japan narrowly avoided blackouts in Tokyo as officials warned consumers must continue to conserve electricity to manage the worst power supply squeeze in more than a decade."

Solterra 2024 anyone?
