Honda to further cut domestic output in February: Sources

  • Honda cut its production earlier this month by about 4,000 units, mainly affecting its Fit and Jazz models.

Japan's Honda Motor will reduce its domestic output next month due to a shortage of semiconductors, two sources familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.

The automaker will lower production in February of models such as the Fit subcompact and the N-series mini-vehicle, by around 2,500 and 5,000 units, respectively, the sources said.

Honda, like its global peers, is facing a shortage of semiconductors.

It is running short on chips used in the Fit's vehicle stability assist system and in the N-series' safety- and driver-assist technology, sources said.

A Honda spokesman said that the automaker plans to adjust productions next month as it did this month, but did not disclose which car models would be affected or the scale of the cut.

"We are continuing to take measures to minimise the effect," he said.

Honda cut its production earlier this month by about 4,000 units, mainly affecting its Fit and Jazz models.

It also reduced production of five models, including the Civic and Accord, at five facilities in the United States and Canada, while China's GAC said its joint venture with Honda had received warnings on supply of certain models.
