Other models reduce the production of the new civic, Honda

DETROIT - Honda Motor Co., warned that Monday, the it popular U.S. dealer behind the models such as the civic bottlenecks are compact this summer because of the parts of Japan's earthquake damage.

It said that normal production may not return until the end of the year.

Honda is cut significantly production of the new civic 2012, the sixth most popular car in the United States, by the summer, if not longer.

In addition version of CR-V of small SUV will be delayed the 2012 by at least one month this fall. Make up to shortages, Honda will make the 2011 version.

Both vehicles are in North America, but like other automakers, Honda must cut production because it is running out on Japanese imports of chips, sensors and other parts. Japanese plants that produce them have been on 11 March earthquake damaged or hindered by power outages.

Almost all the major car companies had idle factories bottleneck. Honda, Toyota Motor Corp. and Nissan Motor Co. have hit particularly hard. Supply companies are scrambling to make their parts from elsewhere, but set up alternative factories will take months.

Honda, which makes sold 80 percent of the vehicles in North America plants in the region, also said that it can import only a limited number of Japan of of cars built in the United States which means that traders do not fit subcompact, and the CR-Z, Insight and civic gas-electric hybrids can order until later in the year.

"Our goal is to normalize production at some point to the end of the year," wrote John Mendel executive Vice President of sales for American Honda, traders, memo.

Bottlenecks are also cut supply with some Acuras, Honda's luxury cars. Traders are not the TSX small car and wagon and the RL order large saloon until later in the year, the memo said.

Honda spokeswoman Christina RA conceded that the production cuts could send some buyers to other brands, but she said that some buyers wait, could be ready.

"We certainly production beef things can get once back to normal," she said.

Honda sold almost 67,000 civics to March, by 21 percent compared to the previous year. Rose to 58 percent sales of CR-V, which ranks No. 11 in U.S. sales, just over 57,000 by March.

Some industry analysts think production cuts by Japanese automakers could help, General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Hyundai and other car manufacturers affected by parts shortages not so hard.

GM, Ford and Hyundai have far better entries in the compact car market than in the past, and buyers who have purchased a Honda or Toyota automatically would be, may end try other brands.

Mendel's memo said Honda jobs would have to use some color pigment in Japan were produced due to missing certain shiny. RA said the colors are types of red, blue, dark grey and white.

Last month Honda said production in its 10 US and Canadian car factories would significantly slow down in at least early may bottleneck. The company still says, none of its 21,000 North American factory workers will be dismissed. Toyota has made similar movements in North America.

Separately, a Toyota remains motor factory in Huntsville, Ala., for lack of electricity. Alabama was devastated by tornadoes Wednesday and spokesman Mike Goss said Toyota is not sure if the plant is open again.

The plant makes engines for the tundra and Tacoma pickup trucks and the Sequoia SUV.

Goss said factories, which assemble the vehicles are so far unaffected. The pickups are IND in San Antonio, Texas, while the Sequoia Princeton, is formed.
