Toyota to halt production

The devastating earthquake is impacting Japan’s entire auto industry. Toyota Motor plans to halt operations at all of its factories in Japan.

Toyota announced on Sunday that it will stop production at its 12 factories across the country on Monday.

Friday’s earthquake and tsunami forced the company’s plants in Miyagi and Iwate Prefecture to suspend production.

The company says it has still not confirmed the damage to its 3 factories in the disaster hit region.

Other automakers, such as Nissan, Honda and Mitsubishi will also cancel operations at either all or some of their plants in Japan for Monday.
