  • TOKYO -- Toyota Motor Corp. is aiming to halve the number of car models it sells at home by 2025, a person briefed on the matter told Reuters -- the second time this month that a Japanese automaker has emerged with plans to sharply scale back in a shrinking domestic market. Car sales in Japan have been on a declining trend for more than two decades as the population rapidly ages and young people are losing interest in car ownership. At the same time, global automakers are increasingly focusing their r&d efforts on electric cars and self-driving technologies. Toyota offers about 60 car models in Japan, where consumers clamor for variety. But it aims to gradually cut that to about 30 by 2025 to make better use of resources, the person said, declining to be identified as he was not authorized to speak on the matter. But even halved, the new domestic model portfolio would still beat the 25 models available in North America, Toyota's biggest market. The plan comes on the heels of ..

  • Japanese wholesale prices increased in September at the fastest annual rate in almost nine years, driven by rising prices for gasoline, metals and agricultural products. However, the gains are not see to increase the Japanese economy's weak inflation. Wholesale prices advanced 3.0 percent last month on a yearly basis, marking the ninth consecutive month of gains, BOJ data showed. The increase also marks the fastest wholesale price growth since October 2008. The increase in corporate goods price index (CGPI), was in line with the average estimate of economists and came after a 2.9 percent annual rise in August. Economists anticipate consumer prices to increase gradually as majority of Japanese firms prefer to absorb the higher input costs, rather than passing on the expenses to consumers, making it for the Bank of Japan to hit its 2 percent inflation target. Since it launched its massive stimulus program in 2013, the BOJ had to delay the timing for hitting its price target six..
