According to the Kyodo agency, after the increased chip demand for smartphones and 5G network equipment, automakers continue to suffer from shortages of supply.

Accordingly, Subaru announced that it will suspend production due to the problem in the supply of chips, which are widely used in engine and brake systems.

The company will stop production for about 2 weeks at its engine and assembly factories in Gunma state, near the capital Tokyo, where it produces approximately 570,000 vehicles in 2020.

The temporary halt will disrupt Subaru’s production of Forester SUV and Legacy sedans.

It was noted that one of the mass production lines will return to normal on April 21, and all of them after May 10.
