Effects of the pandemic on global supply chains continue to cause problems in production at VW. In Wolfsburg, short-time working is being extended due to a lack of semiconductors.

Wolfsburg (dpa) – The lack of microchips and electronic components will result in significantly reduced production and short-time work at the Volkswagen main plant in Wolfsburg in the coming week.

As a company spokesman announced on Tuesday evening, work will only be carried out on assembly line 3 in the morning shift in the coming week until Thursday. The other bands would then stand still. The “Wolfsburger Allgemeine” had previously reported on it.

The company justified the move again with the continuing restricted supply situation for semiconductors. At the moment you drive on sight, said the spokesman. The semiconductor components are found in numerous electronic systems and are also installed in many places in modern cars. On the sidelines of the IAA Mobility auto show at the beginning of September, VW supervisory board chairman Hans Dieter Pötsch said that the lack of large quantities of electronic components should not be over anytime soon. As a result of the pandemic, the company had to adjust the production program several times.
