Honda suspends Thai car output as coronavirus emergency declared

Recommended Posts

There will be many consequences of this virus, massive unemployment being one. I wonder if Thailand will be politically changed when this is all over?

Honda is  not doing so well anymore , they are already almost at the point of  dumping  Australia dropping  half the dealers, they went awol quite some years  ago. Ford is  also maybe going to end up like Chevrolet? this  might give  them the  excuse they need to bail  out

How can they make cars at home?

Not every employee of a manufacturing facility works on the actual shop floor.

 

Ford staff have been WFH for a week or so allready, Their closure today will be the line workers/storeman/pickers/packers/bodyshop/paintshop ETC ETC ETC.

A car dealer here in Perth told me yesterday that Honda will eventually close all dealers and cars will be sold from one large holding area at a fixed price only, no haggling. Take it or leave it !!

The real question is will it ever recover or will Thailand's poor handling of the epidemic cause a permanent shutdown.

Meanwhile, GM executives are quietly patting each other on the back for the perfect timing in shuttering their operations.
