Fewer machines will now be produced at the brand’s production sites in Germany and the UK.
More and more car manufacturers are suffering from a shortage of electronic components. Next in line is the premium German brand BMW. On Thursday, April 29, company representatives officially confirmed that they will have to cut production volumes.
The reason is the lack of the required number of electronic chips. The UK’s Mini assembly plant will have reduced shifts from Friday to Wednesday, while the BMW factory in Regensburg, Germany, will have shorter hours on Thursdays and Fridays.
At the same time, there is no panic in the ranks of the German company – all electronic components have been ordered, deliveries are expected soon.
Note that for BMW, production cuts due to electronics problems were the first, unlike many other manufacturers.
