domestic plants (Mainichi Japan) March 13, 2011

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Toyota Motor Corp. and two other automakers will
continue to suspend production at all their domestic vehicle assembly
plants on Monday due to difficulties in procuring auto parts following
Friday's deadly earthquake in northeastern Japan, company officials
said Saturday.

Toyota plans to close its five domestic plants, including those
operated by its subsidiaries, and 12 auto parts plants, Toyota
officials said.

Toyota subsidiary Central Motor Co. manufactures Toyota vehicles at
its plant in Miyagi Prefecture and Kanto Auto Works Ltd., also a
Toyota unit, produces Toyota cars at its plant in Iwate Prefecture.
The two prefectures were affected severely by the magnitude [9.0]
quake.

The suspension is partly to check whether workers at the factories
are safe, a Toyota official said.

Nissan Motor Co. plans to suspend production at its three domestic
plants on Monday as two of the plants have been damaged by the quake.

Honda Motor Co. will suspend production at its assembly plants in
Saitama and Mie prefectures.

Nippon Steel Corp. has also suspended operations at its steel mill in
Kamaishi, Iwate, which was hit by quake-induced tsunami. Supply of
steel products for automakers will be disrupted if the steel mill
sustains severe damage.

Toyo Tire & Rubber Co. and Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd. have also
suspended operations at their plants in Fukushima Prefecture, while
GS Yuasa Corp. has suspended production of car batteries at its plant
in Gunma Prefecture. Fukushima Prefecture has also been affected
severely by the earthquake.

Among electric and electronics product makers, Mitsubishi Electric
Corp. and NEC Corp. said they will check production lines at their
plants to determine whether to resume production on Monday.
