Semiconductor shortages forced General Motors to temporarily halt production at eight plants in the United States, Canada and Mexico in September. Depending on the location, the band should rest for two weeks, reports the BBC in the context of corporate communications.
Notably, there are four plants in the United States, three in Mexico and one in Canada. Affected models include some of the most profitable ranges from various group brands, including SUVs and pickup trucks that are particularly popular with customers.
the crisis is not over yet
Other manufacturers have also temporarily stopped their production over the past few months due to lack of microchips. The crisis is likely to last for a few more months. On Thursday, Volkswagen registered short work hours for the plant in Emden; Daimler boss Ola Kleinius announced that sales in the third quarter will be significantly weaker than those in April to June.
