Toyota cuts annual auto production target on shortage of chips, parts

TOKYO, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp, the worlds biggest automaker by sales volume, cut its annual production target on Friday by 300,000 vehicles because of a global shortage of chips and supplies of auto parts from factories in Southeast Asia.

The Japanese car maker now expects to build 9 million vehicles in the year to March 31, it said in a press release. The Southeast Asia factories have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, it said. (Reporting by Tim Kelly; Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman)
