During a Q&A session, Chief Executive Officer Toyota IMC, Ali Asghar Jamali, highlighted that the company has been at an advantage in terms of coping with the chip shortage crisis, as it has a decent amount of inventory in stock. He stated that the chip shortage will not be of any consequence for the company at least until mid-2022.
Regarding the impending price hikes, Jamali stated that it could happen as soon as the very next day. He said that the costs of copper, sheet metal, resin, and other raw materials have exponentially gone up, raising the cost of production. He added that the deteriorating value of the local currency is a matter of concern for the entire industry including Toyota IMC.
