NAGOYA (Kyodo) Toyota Motor Corp. plans to resume a weekend production schedule in September, following one it implemented in July, to meet strong demand for the remodeled Prius hybrid sparked by recent government tax breaks and subsidies for fuel-efficient cars, company officials said Tuesday.

Toyota also said it has received about 10,000 domestic orders for its first hybrid-only version of the luxury Lexus HS250h sedan one month after its debut in mid-July, far eclipsing its monthly target of 500 cars.
