Japan's domestic vehicle production in the first half of 2009 plunged 45.2 percent from a year earlier due to the global financial crisis, according to figures released by an industry body Thursday.

During the period, the country's exports plummeted 59.1 percent, the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association said in a report.

Domestic vehicle output totaled 3,321,651 units, down from 6,059,185 units in the same period last year, while exports came to 1,433,488 units, down from 3,505,805 units year-on-year.

In June, domestic motor vehicle production dived 34.0 percent to 683,958 units, the ninth straight month of decline.

Exports also plunged 46.0 percent to 321,255 units in June, for the ninth straight month of fall.
