Toyota is extending the closure of all its North American automobile and components plants until April 20.
Toyota North America said Thursday in a statement it will continue to suspend production due to "the ongoing pandemic and decline in vehicle demand." The company added that "service parts operations and finished vehicle centers will continue to operate to meet the needs of our customers."
This is the third shutdown extension for Toyota. Originally, Toyota said it would reopen facilities on April 6.
Some context: Chrysler also announced Thursday it would keep its North American operations closed until April 14. Ford recently announced it would reopen plants on April 6.
