VW cuts output further over semiconductor shortage

Europe

HAMBURG — Volkswagen said it would further cut car production at its Wolfsburg plant in northern Germany due to a shortage of semiconductors that has hit the industry worldwide.

Staff producing the Tiguan, Touran, and Seat Tarraco models at Wolfsburg will work reduced hours, VW said in a statement on Wednesday. Production of the Golf compact hatchback has already been affected.

Automakers and electronics makers are facing a global shortage of chips as consumer demand has bounced back from a slump caused by the coronavirus pandemic that has led to manufacturing delays.
