Honda Malaysia said in a statement that the flooding had caused Honda Automobile Thailand and other major suppliers to close, leading to a parts shortage.

Honda Malaysia CEO Yoichiro Ueno said the company would do all it could to get production back up and running “as soon as possible”.

The company said in the statement it was looking into sourcing parts from other countries until supplies in Thailand return to normal.

A Honda Malaysia spokesman said four Honda models — the Civic, City, Accord and CR-V — would be affected but it was still unclear how long deliveries would be delayed.

At full capacity, the Honda Malaysia plant can produce up to 40,000 units per year.
