German carmaker Audi will cut down production at its Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm plants due to a shortage of semiconductor chips.
The chip shortage is going to impact production in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm which produce A3, A4, and A5 models and, local media reported. This will turn over 10,000 employees into part-time workers.
Next week, Neckarsulm will halt assembly lines of some models, while the decision about June production decision is pending, said the company spokesman.
The shortage of semiconductor chip had caused the company to cancel shifts in the earlier months.
