Toyota Motor said on Friday that its domestic vehicle production would be 1% higher than what was planned earlier for September, as the plants resume output levels following a drop due to coronavirus crisis.

The company plans to produce approximately 2,300 more cars and trucks than its initial plan for about 230,000.

Vehicle production at the Japanese automaker is recovering at home and abroad since global output dropped by more than half year-on-year in April and May when plants were closed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Toyota has refused to comment on global production plans for next month, but the company has said it expects global sales are going experience a 15% decline in the July-September quarter from last year, and 5% lower in October-December. By early 2021, sales will see a 5% increase in the year.

Toyota prepares to sell 7.2 million vehicles in the year to March, dropping 20% from a year ago.
