The lack of semiconductor components forced Stellantis to suspend its production in late May too.

Moreover, it is already the second carmaker that has recently announced its plans to stop its production lines at the beginning of this week. Bratislava-based Volkswagen Slovakia announced that it will suspend its production of SUV vehicles on Monday and Tuesday as well. The manufacturing of small city vehicles should not be affected.
