Toyota Motors has reduced its internal global production by 200,000 units to 7.8 million vehicles due to weakening demand in US, Asahi Shimbun reported.

The new production plan was revised down from August and would mean Toyota's global production would fall short of 8 million units for the third straight year. The figure excludes units Daihatsu Motor Co and Hino Motors Ltd, the report said.

Last week, Toyota Motors US auto sales in November dropped by 3 percent compared to sales in November 2009, making it the only major automobile maker to report a sales drop for the month.

The company sold 129,317 vehicles in November, as against 133,700 vehicles during the same period a year ago.

Toyota, the world's top automaker, said it cut back on sales to fleets including car rental agencies by 60 percent in November from a year earlier, while its sales to consumers rose about 5 percent.

Toyota has recalled about 14 million vehicles worldwide since last November, including 11 million in the United States. On Monday, Toyota said it would replace potentially defective coolant pumps in 378,000 U.S. Prius hybrids.
