NAGOYA (Kyodo) Toyota Motor Corp. employees at two Aichi Prefecture factories will put in some overtime next month for the first time in six months thanks to strong demand for the Prius hybrid, company officials said Wednesday.

Toyota will boost production of the Prius by about 20 percent from its initial plan of 42,000 to 43,000 per month, to around 50,000 units, they said.
