Carmaker Toyota Motor Corp. – which happens to be the world’s biggest carmaker – will reportedly stop production at a Thai plant, as it plans to move its output into the Southeast Asian nation.


According to the company spokeswoman Monika Saito, Toyota will shift production of the Hilux Vigo and Fortuna trucks to two of its three other factories in the country from the end of May 2010 onwards.

However, Saito also said that Toyota’s sales in Thailand in the first four months of this year increased by 43 percent to about 92,000 units from a year earlier,and that production and sales were in no way affected by the political unrest in Thailand.
