Nov. 17, 2021—Volkswagen is halting production of electric vehicles at two of its plants in Germany for a week due to the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage.

According to a report from German business newspaper Automobilwoche cited in Electrek, VW will temporarily stop production of its ID.3 and ID.4 models, as well as the Audi Q4 e-tron and Cupra Born.

“The chip crisis is now also affecting e-car production at VW: Production will be suspended in Zwickau and Dresden this week. Audi and Cupra models are also affected. 5000 vehicles will be eliminated as a result," the German publication said. 

The German automaker delivered 122,100 EVs during Q3 2021, more than doubling its output compared to the same time last year.
