Toyota Motor Corp today (12 March) cancelled the Tokyo launch of its new Passo model, due to bad timing, following the company's recent decision to recall around eight million vehicles worldwide due to accelerator problems.

However, a spokesperson for Toyota UK told Event that launch decisions differ from market to market and that it has no plans to cancel any UK launches.

The statement comes as Toyota prepares to launch its new Auris model at the end of the month.

Toyota UK declined to comment on specifics of the launch.
