TOKYO (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp said on Wednesday there was no change in its plan to produce 9.7 million vehicles globally this fiscal year.

The company said it will suspend production on three lines at one factory in Japan for some days in September amid a parts shortage caused by the spread of COVID-19.

Toyota says it expects to produce about 850,000 vehicles globally in September.
