The semiconductor shortage will force General Motors to suspend production at eight plants in the United States, Canada and Mexico in September. Depending on the location, the bands may rest for up to two weeks, with the BBC, among others, referring to corporate communications.
In particular, there are four plants in the United States, three in Mexico and one in Canada. The affected models include the most lucrative series of various group brands including SUVs and pickup trucks especially popular among customers.
The crisis is not over yet
Other manufacturers have also suspended their production for the past few months due to the lack of microchips. The crisis will continue for a few more months. On Thursday, Volkswagen recorded short-term work for the plant in Emden; Daimler boss Ola Clenius announced that sales in the third quarter will be significantly weaker from April to June. (Mer)
