Honda Motor said on Thursday it would decrease car output by up to 40% at two Japanese plants for the rest of October from its previous plans, as the automaker battles with persistent supply chain and logistical issues.

Two lines at Honda’s Suzuka plant located in western Japan will decrease production by about 20% in October, while its assembly plant located in Saitama prefecture, north of Tokyo, will reduce production plans by about 40% for the month.

The automaker said last month it would reduce vehicle production at Suzuka by 40% and Saitama by 30% in early October.

The automaker blamed delays in getting parts and logistics on COVID-19 outbreaks and semiconductor shortages. The output decline will affect vehicles including the Vezel sport-utility vehicle, Stepwgn minivan, and Civic compact car.
