According to Bloomberg, Honda has delayed the release of the next-generation CR-V as a result of supplier constriction brought on by the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear tragedies in Japan. The report says that the 2012 Honda CR-V will debut a month later than originally anticipated, though that model won't be the only vehicle in the Japanese automaker's stable impacted by the events. Bloomberg also notes that the recently unveiled 2012 Honda Civic will see limited production for the next few months, as well.

Honda also announced that it will begin production of the CR-V at the company's Alliston, Ontario manufacturing facility while continuing to build the vehicles in East Liberty, Ohio as well.

Like most Japanese automakers, Honda says that full-scale production won't resume until late 2011 as the rebuilding process continues. Toyota recently announced that the company's operations have been cut to 50 percent capacity and that it doesn't expect to see full production again until December at the earliest.
