Subaru closes one Japanese plant

Subaru closes one Japanese plant


Carscoops portal writes about this with a link to Nikkei Asia.

Subaru is suspending operations at its Yajima plant in Gunma Prefecture, Japan, where the Outback and Forester station wagons are produced, according to published data. According to preliminary data, the assembly will not be carried out from 10 to 27 April this year. The company is expected to cut production by about 10,000 vehicles.

In the meantime, the Gunme, Japan plant, which has one common assembly line, will continue to operate. The reason for the assembly stop is the lack of semiconductor microcircuits, which has affected all world automakers. Subaru said the chip shortage was not due to a March 19 fire at Renesas Electronics.

Earlier it was reported that Ford suspended production of its popular Ford F-150 pickups at factories in the United States for two weeks. A little later, Suzuki announced the suspension of assembly at two of its three factories in Japan. In both cases, the reason for the stop is the lack of chips.
