“Production will resume January 2, 2022 ″, said the announcement of the Stellantis group. “There is a solution of reduced work for employees in order to make the interruption of production socially acceptable”. About 460 people they are employed in the factory in the city of the Danube, in the north-east of Vienna.
The entire global auto industry is in an exceptional situation due to the current Covid 19 health crisis and the lack of semiconductors. “In this challenging and uncertain situation, Stellantis will make changes to production “.
