German car group Volkswagen will this week halt production at two major plants in Germany. Writes a reputable car website Europe Car News.
The plant in Zwickau is closed for production from Tuesday to Friday this week, while the plant in Dresden is closed between Wednesday and Friday.
The Volkswagen Group has a network of 40,000 suppliers. Some are located in western Ukraine, and the war has caused supply chain problems. These include wires that are produced in the country.
The two plants produce the VW ID3, VW ID4, VW ID5 and Audi Q4 e-tron electric cars.
The Zwickau plant produces 1,200 electric cars per day, according to Automotive News, citing an article on the German financial website. Handelsblatt.

The closure of the factory affects the production of many models popular in this country. It’s too early to say if this will affect Norwegian customers, communications director for Volkswagen’s Norwegian importer, Harald A. Muller, Lars Joachim Hansen says in an email to DinSide.
– But several steps are being taken to ensure that full production can resume as soon as possible. Like the rest of the world, we are following the situation closely. Most urgent, of course, is the observance of life and health in the brutal situation of the Ukrainian people. he is writing.
