Production lost between March 14-26 would be about 140,000 units. Toyota had been expecting to resume assembly today (Tuesday).Electronics giant Sony said more five plants, mostly in central and southern Japan, were hit by parts shortages stemming from the disaster and would close or reduce output until the end of the month.“If the shortage of parts and materials supplied to these plants continues, we will consider necessary measures, including a temporary shift of production overseas,” the company that makes the Playstation games console said in a statement. The plants make such products as digital and video cameras, televisions and microphones, the company said in a statement.A sixth plant in Chiba, north of Tokyo, was set to resume production, but it could be interrupted by the blackouts that are affecting some areas supplied by Tokyo Electric Power , the operator of the stricken nuclear plant.Including two factories only partially restarted last week, 15 Sony plants out of a total of 25 in Japan are currently affected. It has a total of 54 plants worldwide.
