PRAGUE -- Skoda will cut production of its Enyaq battery-electric SUV in the Czech Republic due to supply shortages after Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
"Due to the current situation in Ukraine, Skoda Auto is facing critical supply shortages of parts from several local suppliers that have effect on some of our models," the automaker said.
Production of the Enyaq will be reduced from this week onward, Skoda said.
Skoda said its supply chain includes a number of suppliers in western Ukraine.
The Volkswagen Group subsidiary said production of its models was still running at two plants in Russia, which has been hit by Western sanctions for its invasion of Ukraine.
Russia was Skoda's second-largest market in 2021, with more than 90,000 vehicles delivered. Ukraine has also been a stable market, Skoda said.
"The sales strategy in Russia and Ukraine is currently the subject of intensive discussions. Sales in both Ukraine and Russia can be expected to fall in view of recent developments," Skoda said.
