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.

Honda in a press release on its website said production in early October should rebound to 70% of capacity.

“We are doing what we can to minimize the impact on production, but the situation remains unclear,” the Japanese company said.
