Toyota, Volkswagen hit by car production issues

Production of the popular Volkswagen T-Roc new car is set to be paused due to component supply issues caused by heavy flooding in Slovenia, just days after Toyota was hit by its own production issues.

An unnamed Solvenian supplier to Volkswagen was impacted by the flooding, and as a result VW will cease output at its assembly plant in Portugal for several weeks, according to reports in Germany.

The T-Roc was the highest selling new Volkswagen in Europe during the first half of 2023, according to date from JATO.

Earlier this week Toyota also suffered a production setback, when it suspended operations at its 14 assembly plants in Japan.

The Japan Times reports that a computer system processing orders for parts developed a malfunction, and that Toyota had expected to resume production less than a day later.

Toyota did not give details of what went wrong, but stated it was not as a result of a cyberattack.

In February 2022 it shut down the factories after a supplier reported that its file servers had been infected with a virus.
