    Toyota to suspend production in Japan for six days

    Feb 1, Tokyo: Toyota Motor Corporation has said that it will suspend vehicle production in Japan for six days this month due to a shortage of parts.

    The automaker said on Monday that the shortage stems from a Jan. 8 explosion at an Aichi Steel Corp. manufacturing plant.

    Vehicle production in Japan will be suspended from February 8 to February 13. Overseas production lines aren't affected.

    Toyota is the world's top-selling automaker. It sold 10.15 million vehicles worldwide last year.
