(TOKYO) -- Toyota resumed vehicle production at all of its Japanese plants Monday, just over a month after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Japan forced the company to shut down most of its operations in the country.
The Japanese automaker said it will build cars through April 27, after which production facilities will go on their annual spring holiday break until May 10. The plants will operate at about half capacity leading up to the break and between May 10 and June 3. Production rates after June 3 will be determined after the automaker assesses its parts supply.
Toyota was forced to stop manufacturing vehicles in Japan after the quake struck. Most recently, the automaker had resumed producing repair and replacement parts in the country.
