TOKYO (Reuters) – Honda Motor Co said its car factories in Japan have been operating at 40% of capacity in August and September because of shortages of semiconductors and other components caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a press release, Honda stated that production should return to 70% in October.

The Japanese company stated that while they are trying to reduce the production impact, the current situation is still unclear.
