Toyota's production back at pre-disaster levels

TOKYO — Toyota says its global vehicle production is back up at pre-disaster levels as of last month.

The March 11 earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan disrupted production at Toyota Motor Corp. and other automakers because parts suppliers in northeastern Japan were damaged by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

Toyota initially said it didn't expect production to return to normal until late this year. It said in June production would be nearly back to normal in July. In August, it said it would be completely recovered in September.
