AUTOSHOW-Honda: China output to be affected by Japan parts shortage

SHANGHAI, April 19 (Reuters) - Honda Motor Co’s production in China will be affected by Japan’s part supply shortage, its China head Seiji Kuraishi said on Tuesday.

Honda said the parts shortage due to Japan’s quake would only start to affect China customers by around late June or early July, thanks to current inventories.

“We expect to be able to produce in China without stopping the lines until the end of May,” Kuraishi told a small group of reporters at the Shanghai auto show.
