High temperatures are felt in most regions of the northern hemisphere and in our country this has been the theme that opens the news, unfortunately due to the fires that have been wreaking havoc in various areas of the country.

But in other countries the situation is no better, and according to recent information, Toyota has reduced production of its vehicles at the factory located in Texas due to the extreme heat.

Heat causes Toyota to reduce production of its cars in Texas

according to news revealed, Toyota Motor Corp. said on Thursday (14) that it has reduced production at its assembly plant in San Antonio, Texas, as the heat wave strains the US state's energy supply.

Details indicate that the Texas power grid operator took some emergency measures Wednesday to prevent ongoing blackouts as demand for electricity significantly increased.

According to a spokesperson for the Japanese manufacturer, the company will be able to suspend production on most days before 2 pm and still reduce night shifts. These actions will take immediate effect until mid-August.

Toyota had already scheduled to suspend its activity for 7 days next week, but the reason at that time had to do with the global shortage of semiconductors, and not with the heat wave that is currently felt.

As such, the company now joins others also located in Texas, such as Samsung Electronics, which are using less energy. In a statement issued on Thursday, Samsung clarified that "we are carefully monitoring weather conditions and contacting local authorities to adjust our plans".
