Toyota to suspend Prius production in Thailand

NAGOYA -- Toyota Motor will halt production of Prius hybrid vehicles in Thailand indefinitely next month on slowing sales in the country as well as tariff-related conflicts with local authorities.

     Toyota maintains its largest Southeast Asian production base in Thailand, manufacturing pickup trucks and other vehicles under its Toyota Motor Thailand subsidiary. After launching production in Japan and then in China, Toyota began producing the Prius in Thailand in November 2010, using batteries, motors and other components imported from Japan.
