Union: Škoda to halt production over lack of chips

Carmaker Škoda Auto will completely halt part of its production next week due to a shortage of computer chips and other parts, the trade union newspaper at the company said. The firm has not confirmed this news.

On Wednesday the head of production and logistics at Škoda Auto told the news site iHned.cz that a lack of chips was preventing it from completing up to 5,000 cars a week. It has around 33,000 unfinished cars standing in its lots.
