Nissan has halted production at its factory in St. Petersburg, Russia, for three weeks, citing a shortage of parts.
The stoppage began Monday, a Nissan spokesman told Automotive News Europe. The company has had problems sourcing parts from outside the country, the spokesman added.
"Due to ongoing logistics challenges, we have suspended exports of finished vehicles to Russia and the Nissan plant in Saint Petersburg has suspended production from March 14 for three weeks. Nissan is carefully monitoring the ongoing situation," the automaker said in an emailed statement.
Nissan has about 2,000 employees working at the plant and additional workers in sales and marketing roles in Moscow. Production at the factory was 45,040 vehicles last year, the company said.
Nissan joins a range of automakers who have paused production in Russia after Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine at the end of February. Others have halted exports to Russia.
