The massive Japan earthquake and tsunami on March 11 in northeastern Japan disrupted production of Toyota and other automakers because parts suppliers in northeastern Japan were damaged.


Toyota initially said it didn’t expect production to return to normal until late this year.


It said in June that production would be nearly back to normal in July. In August, it said it would be completely recovered in September. The latest confirmation highlights Toyota’s ability to bounce back.


Furthermore, Toyota workers will be racking up overtime and doing extra shifts in coming months to make up for lost production from the disaster.
