Another four non-production days are scheduled for February, said Švec, adding that the plan for 2013 is still to produce more vehicles than in 2012, when output reached 215,000. Demand for new cars has been gradually decreasing in Europe, according to an analysis carried out by the International Organisation of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA).
