BERLIN -- Audi’s Neckarsulm plant in Germany has been forced to shut down production since the beginning of the week, an Audi spokesperson confirmed to Automotive News Europe.
Supply bottlenecks caused by the war in Ukraine and the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the current situation regarding the supply of semiconductors, are contributing factors.
Production of the A4 and A5 models has been at a standstill in Neckarsulm since Monday. Production of the A6 and A7 models has been stopped since March 7.
Production will be paused until Friday, March 25.
