When I got my RAV4 hybrid back in Feb, there was a steel factory explosion that happened the day before we got our car that kind of help to push for the decision to buy earlier vs later. I am still not seeing any (ok, maybe once in past 2 month, a XLE hybrid) out in the streets and freeway of So Cal.

I wonder what's the impact of the recent earthquake would cause the production of RAV4 hybrid, given all RAV4 hybrid are still made in Japan?

I believe specifically the RAV4 hybrid are build in Aichi, Japan, which are not near Kyushu, but their supplier might be.
