MUNICH– Volkswagen Group said it is adjusting production in North America, Europe and China because of a shortage of automotive microchips.
The move will affect production of VW, Audi, Skoda and Seat models based on VW Group’s MQB platform,VW said in a statement on Friday. The platform underpins car such as the VW Golf.
Semiconductor manufacturers reassigned their production capacities to other sectors such as consumer electronics during the slump in car sales earlier this year caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
