Mazda Motor Corp. requested a 300 billion-yen ($2.8 billion) loan from Japanese banks amid a plunge in demand for vehicles and plant shutdowns, Nikkei reported on Saturday.

The car maker asked for loans from MUFG Bank, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking and Mizuho Bank, as well as the government-owned Development Bank of Japan and Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank, according to the report, which didn’t specify how it obtained the information. The banks are expected to provide the financing.
