Toyota Motor’s Daihatsu unit said on Friday it planned to unveil a new management structure next week.
Soichiro Okudaira, president of Daihatsu, whose production has been hampered by issues related to safety testing irregularities, also told reporters that the company planned to spend more time and allocate more workers for development.
The group has also decided to resume production and shipments of the Pixis Epoch and Pixis Truck / Van, which is outsourced to Daihatsu Motor Co. (Daihatsu).
On January 30, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) confirmed that the above three models are in compliance with the standards of the Road Transport Vehicle Act, following the Probox, which has already been released from shipment suspension. In addition, Toyota said it has been receiving both strong criticism and warm comments, along with requests for its products from customers and other concerned parties.
