Toyota resumes production at Japan plants

April 18, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
Auto giant Toyota Motor Corp. has resumed car production at all its plants in Japan.

The factories though are running at half capacity due to parts shortages.

A spokesperson for the company says it is unclear when Toyota will return to full production.

The magnitude-9.0 earthquake and ensuing tsunami on March 11 destroyed parts factories in northeastern Japan, causing severe shortages of auto parts.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
