TOKYO -- Toyota Motor unit Hino Motors will halt production of some medium- and heavy-duty trucks for at least another year after an engine emissions cheating scandal, Nikkei has learned.

Some domestic models of the medium-duty Ranger truck brand and the heavy-duty Profia truck brand will not be produced until August 2023. Those models had false emissions tests, the company said, and shipments of the models had stopped in March.
