Toyota Land Cruiser Updates: Customers in Japan will have to wait up to four years for Toyota’s new Land Cruiser SUV to be delivered, according to the automaker. The delay, according to the world’s largest automaker, is unrelated to a global semiconductor shortage or a supply chain catastrophe. Customers in Japan will have to wait up to four years for Toyota’s new Land Cruiser SUV to be delivered, according to the automaker.
The delay, according to the world’s largest automaker, is unrelated to a global semiconductor shortage or a supply chain catastrophe. It, on the other hand, refused to comment on the reasons for the lengthy delivery period.
Meanwhile, Toyota has announced that production at up to 11 factories in Japan may be slowed because of an increase in Covid19 infections among its employees and parts suppliers. “Because the Land Cruiser is so popular not just in Japan but around the world,” Toyota noted on its website, “it is likely to take a long time until we can deliver the product.
“If you order now, it’s possible that it will take up to four years. We will continue to reduce delivery times, and we thank you for your patience. “This delay is not due to the present semiconductor scarcity or supply chain issue,” the company added.
According to the BBC, there has been a high demand for the new Land Cruiser model, and Toyota is exploring increasing manufacturing in the medium and long term. The Land Cruiser, which debuted in 1951 and has sold a total of 10.6 million units as of August last year, is Toyota’s most popular vehicle.
IN recent months, the company, like many of its competitors such as General Motors, Ford, Nissan, Daimler, BMW, and Renault, has been compelled to reduce vehicle production. Toyota stated last month that it would extend work stoppages at certain of its Japanese operations as a result of supply chain concerns.
Due to the pandemic, the company’s component facilities in Southeast Asia have been disrupted, causing delays in Land Cruiser and Lexus manufacturing. Because of the chip scarcity, the business said earlier this year that it will reduce global vehicle manufacturing by 40% in September.
Toyota’s stock was down 2.7 percent in Tokyo trading on Friday. Since the beginning of this year, there has been an increase in instances of the Omicron coronavirus variety in Japan.
