In February 2020, sales of Toyota cars in China fell by more than 60 percent, to 23.8 thousand units, and in January-February, demand fell by 25 percent compared to the same period last year.
Other automakers have been hit by a shortage of components that were shipped from China before the epidemic. In particular, Nissan and Jaguar Land Rover previously announced a possible suspension of production. Fiat temporarily froze the release of the 500L model due to the lack of audio components that were transported from China. In addition, car dealerships in Beijing and Geneva were canceled.
