NAGOYA, Japan -- Toyota Motor is on track to exceed its global production target of 9 million vehicles for the current fiscal year, with plans to boost output in February and March to offset pandemic-induced disruptions.

The Japanese automaker produced 820,000 vehicles in November, according to Friday's announcement, and December output is planned at 800,000. Accounting for January-March production plans disclosed to parts suppliers, global output for the fiscal year through March 31 would total nearly 9.2 million units.
