Audi is finding itself in a difficult position once again. The luxury automaker is facing limited production this week at two of its factories in Germany as the semiconductor chip crisis continues to wreak havoc on the industry. Automobilwoche reports the two plants are located in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm.
The former factory contains assembly lines for Audi A3, A4, A5, and Q2. Neckarsulm, which is more severely impacted by the lack of chips, is home to the A6, A7, and A8. The A8, however, is only being built in a single shift this week. The rest have been idled. In general, nearly all of these factory’s assembly lines have been idled since Monday until at least this coming Friday with one exception: the R8 and e-tron GT.
