Daihatsu has restarted part of its vehicle production more than a month and a half after suspending all operations at its factories in Japan in the wake of the safety test tampering scandal.

The car company specializing in small cars, controlled by Toyota, has resumed producing two models at the plant located in Kyoto prefecture after obtaining approval from the Japanese Ministry of Transport.

This is the Probox commercial van - which Daihatsu produces for Toyota, and the Familia Van for Mazda, while on February 26 it will restart production of another 10 models, following the green light from regulators on compliance with safety regulations obtained last week.

In December, Daihatsu admitted it had falsified data in safety tests for most of its models since 1989, leading to a halt to all shipments at home and abroad and a halt to domestic assembly line operations.


    Daihatsu has also resumed shipments to Malaysia and Indonesia after obtaining approval from local authorities in the two Southeast Asian countries.
