PRINCETON, Ind. (AP) -- Toyota Motor Corp. says it will slow production of pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles at its Princeton, Ind., plant due to a decline in demand for the vehicles.
Toyota plans to stop production of its Tundra pickup trucks and Sequoia SUVs for six days by the end of August at the plant about 20 miles north of Evansville, Ind.
Plant spokeswoman Kelly Dillon says the ''nonproduction days'' are an effort to avoid layoffs. Workers will be asked to take vacation days or a day off without pay when production is halted. Those who come to work on those days will be given other tasks.
Toyota recently told 200 temporary workers at its truck plant in Texas they will be laid off this summer.
