Toyota cutting production to 7-year low


The company says it aims to produce 6.68 million vehicles in 2009, down from 9.24 million in 2008. Toyota has already said it expects the current fiscal year through March 2010 to be its worst ever financially, forecasting a net loss of 550 billion yen ($5.7 billion).
