Japan’s Mazda plans to halt output temporarily for 10 days in July as the global semiconductor chips shortage continues.


The carmaker’s Hofu no. 1 plant in southwest Japan’s Yamaguchi prefecture will suspend operations from Jul 5-9 and Jul 12-16, per media reports on Wednesday.


Mazda had already estimated a global production loss of around 100,000 vehicles this year after factoring in the short supply of chips, in a separate media statement in May.
