Jan. 23, 2024

Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd. would like to again convey its sincerest apologies for betraying the trust of its customers and all other stakeholders and the great inconvenience it has caused by the procedural irregularities in certification processes.
We had initially planned to suspend operations at all domestic assembly plants until the end of January, due to the procedural irregularities in certification processes.
And we have now decided on the following regarding operations from February onwards.
