Toyota said on Tuesday that its worldwide production in February increased from a year earlier owing to a recovery in sales in its Chinese market.

The Japanese automaker said its worldwide production in the reporting month expanded 6.8 percent year-on-year to 668,001 units.

The maker of the ubiquitous hybrid Prius and Corolla sedan models also said its worldwide output increased for the sixth successive month in February as customer demand continues to improve after suffering a decline due to the coronavirus crisis.

Toyota’s domestic production saw a decline, however, with output declining 7.5 percent from the previous year to 244,048 units.

The automaker said this was because of a powerful earthquake that hit the northeastern region of the country last month, disrupting one of its parts providers and forcing some of Toyota’s plants to temporarily halted the production.

As for the automaker’s worldwide sales in February, they struck a record for the month, increasing 9.2 percent to 711,698 vehicles, Toyota said.
