November 04, 2011

Oct. 31 (Bloomberg) -- Honda Motor Co. said it plans to cut output at six plants in the U.S. and Canada by setting production about 50 percent of its original plan through Nov. 10 because of floods in Thailand.

Saturday overtime work will be canceled through November, Honda said in an e-mailed statement. The company also said a “non-production day” is scheduled for Nov. 11. The December sales date for the new 2012 CR-V may be delayed by “several weeks,” Honda said.
