BERLIN -- BMW is being forced to stop production of BMW and Mini cars in its German and other European plants after Russia's invasion of the Ukraine halted deliveries of key components.
Vehicle production at BMW's plants in Munich and in Dingolfing, both Germany, will be paused next week, as will output at the Mini factory in Oxford, England.
Engine production at BMW's engine factory in Steyr, Austria, will also be suspended.
