Toyota Restarts Vehicle Production at China’s Changchun Plant

  • Plant halted in March as part of Covid containment measures
  • Other manufacturers have gradually resumed production

Toyota Motor Corp. restarted operations at its Changchun plant in China, joining Volkswagen AG and other manufacturers in resuming production after more than a month of halted output due to restrictions to stem the spread of Covid-19. 

Output gradually resumed on Sunday and normal operations are scheduled to begin May 4 at the factory making RAV4 SUVs in Jilin province in northeastern China, Shiori Hashimoto, a spokeswoman for Toyota, said on Monday. She declined to comment on how many units of production the halt impacted.
