Toyota to study possible impact of Kobe Steel issue in India
Japanese auto major Toyota said it is studying the possible impact in India with regard to supplies by Kobe Steel which is mired in a controversy over falsification of data on the quality of its products.
Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Ford are major automobile companies to which Kobe Steel had supplied its products.
Ford said its models in India are not affected by the issue.
“Putting utmost priority on the safety of our customers, we are rapidly working to identify which vehicle models might be subject to this situation and what components were used, as well as what effect there might be on individual vehicles,” a Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) spokesperson told.
At the same time, the company is also considering what measures need to be put in place going forward, the spokesperson added.
