Asco Motors says they are experiencing delays in the production of Toyota models and this is affecting their ability to meet customer demand in a timely manner.
In a statement, they say the delay is a result of the massive shortage in the supply of semi-conductor parts and wiring-harness components, which is affecting automotive suppliers and manufacturers worldwide and Toyota is no exception.
They further say the shortage comes after many factories have scaled down production capacities in line with COVID-19 restrictions.
Asco Motors adds despite the difficult circumstances, Toyota and its global suppliers have strived to continue production of these parts and components, including securing substitute parts and recovering lost output in time to meet global demands.
However, it further says extensive delays in the global supply networks will continue for the foreseeable interim, and this will affect the timely arrival of Toyota models in Fiji.
The models affected by these delays include the newly launched LC300, Rav 4, Hilux and Prado.
