Toyota Prius: Production cut by 10% after global recall

By Alan Ng - Mar 15, 2010

It has been reported that Toyota are set to cut production of their once-popular Prius model, by as much as 10%, following the global recall of 450,000 Prius hybrid models due to braking defects.

As reported from TimesOnline, sales of the Prius have fallen, and it now looks likely that production will be capped to just 45,000 vehicles per month, compared to 50,000 vehicles a month previously.

Prius models were recalled over a braking problem, which particularly affected cars in icy or bumpy weather conditions.

Aside from the ongoing recall, Toyota are also having to deal with a series of lawsuits – which we told you about in our previous article here.
