Toyota-to-Fisker Scrap 15,000 Vehicles Ruined by Hurricane Sandy

Updated on

Toyota Motor Corp., Chrysler Group LLC, Nissan Motor Co., Honda Motor Co. and their dealers plan to scrap more than 15,000 new vehicles damaged by Hurricane Sandy as the industry continues assessing the storm’s impact.

Nissan alone estimates more than 6,000 Nissan and luxury Infiniti brand cars and light trucks are “un-saleable” because of the storm, Travis Parman, a company spokesman, said late this week. Including used autos and those of individual owners, as many as 200,000 may have to be replaced, said Larry Dixon, senior analyst for the National Automobile Dealers Association.
