Honda, production cut in Japan: the reasons for this choice
Bad news in the house Honda; in the past few hours, the Japanese giant has announced that it will reduce car production in Japan by 40% in the first part of next month. The production cut concerns several factories of the brand in the Rising Sun. The plant located in Saitama prefecture, north of Tokyo, is certainly the most affected.

The reason for these cuts would seem to be related to delays in receiving components fundamentals such as microchips and semiconductors.
Something related to the Coronavirus pandemic. A turnaround for Honda, come to think of it, given that the company was convinced that production could return to normal at the beginning of last June. According to the Japanese, however, the situation should improve as early as the second half of September. It is certain that this problem, which has long linked the entire automotive sector, will not please the top management of the multinational.
