Further Product Shortages For Nissan and Toyota

{img}More bad news face Nissan’s and Toyota’s dealerships worldwide due to an extension of parts shortage over the coming months.

Inside sources have reported that the Japanese automakers, Nissan and Toyota, have contacted dealerships across the world and informed them that full production capacity may not be available in the next 30 to 90 days. This period of time will start once the holiday break in Japan is over and that means full production rate will not be available until late June.

According to Toyota, at this point the Japanese manufacturer has already a 120,000 units deficit due to reduced production. Component shortage is the main cause of this figure and things are not going to change for the better in the coming future.

As a result of this limited production capacity, Nissan has invested all its current resources in the top selling models, in order to provide vehicles that have a high demand. The change is a result of a statement made by Nissan to the North American dealerships, that the Japanese automaker will be able to provide just 7,500 units in the month of May comparing to 40,000 vehicles in March.

Models that were revealed recently like the Murano Cross Cabriolet, have had their launch postponed for two months at least due to components supply shortage. Toyota dealership in Michigan should receive around 3,000 units, but it is believed that just about 600 vehicles will be provided.

No matter how many cars the Japanese automakers can provide, most dealerships strongly believe that their stock supply will run out in late May.
