TOKYO (AP) -- Toyota says its auto production in Japan will recover to 90 percent of its pre-disaster levels next month, faster than anticipated.

The news Tuesday highlights the power of Toyota Motor Corp. to bounce back from the serious production disruptions from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that damaged the plants of key parts suppliers in northeastern Japan.

Toyota Motor Corp. said earlier production globally would be about 70 percent in coming months.
