Lexus is scaling back vehicle production due to falling demand because of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak in China.
Output will be cut about 6 percent from the projected levels at the company’s plants in Fukuoka and Aichi prefectures, amounting to 1,000-2,000 fewer Lexus vehicles built.
The Toyota brand has seen sales in China plummet 70% this year, to just 23,800 units overall. Lexus sold approximately 202,000 units in China last year.
