NEW YORK -- Toyota Motor suspended some production at four plants in the U.S. and Mexico, Nikkei learned Wednesday, owing to a disruption in supplies of plastic components and other parts after winter storm-related power outages in Texas.

Some of the plants appear to have begun adjusting production around Thursday last week. The plants in question are expected to be idled for roughly 10 days until early April.
