BERLIN -- A dearth of supply from the Ukraine of wire harnesses, a key component for vehicle manufacturing, will lead to production cuts at Volkswagen Group's Audi division.
Production of A4 and A5 models at Audi's home plant in Ingolstadt, Germany, will be suspended from March 7-11. In Neckarsulm, production of A6 and A7 models will be paused from March 7-18.
Further output cuts are likely to follow, Audi said in emailed comments on Thursday.

Audi has imposed an order freeze for its hybrid models because of production interruptions, an Audi spokesman told Automotive News Europe sister publication Automobilwoche.
"Due to high demand as well as some restrictions caused by the supply situation, the production volume is currently already exhausted for the Audi PHEV models for 2022," the Audi spokesman said.
