Honda Motor said on Thursday it would cut production plans by about 40% in Japan early in September because of persistent supply chain and logistical disruptions.

Its assembly plant located in Saitama prefecture, north of Tokyo, will reduce production by about 40% early next month.

Two lines at its Suzuka plant in western Japan will cut production plans by about 30% in early September.

The delays in receiving parts and logistics happened due to COVID-19 and semiconductor shortages, Honda said. It would affect the production of a variety of vehicles including the Vezel sports utility vehicle, the Stepwgn minivan and the Civic compact car.

The Saitama plant and the Suzuka plant would slash production by about 10% and 30% for the rest of the month.

The automaker adjusted its production plan in May but had said it would get back to normal in early June.
