Audi's production halt has been extended due to a shortage of semiconductors.

Due to the ongoing semiconductor shortage, Audi has decided to extend its production halts. This week, most of the assembly lines at its Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm plants have been shut down.

According to Automotive News Europe, the reduced work schedule was supposed to end last Friday. This has now been re-explained.

The Audi Q2 crossover and A3 compact car assembly lines in Ingolstadt will be completely shut down next week. Last week, the same line remained unchanged.

The chip shortage continues to wreak havoc on the automotive industry.

Skoda began a two-week output cut on Monday as the Czech manufacturer deals with a global shortage of chips and other components.

Maserati announced on Monday that a shortage of semiconductors would push the launch of its Grecale SUV into next year.

There are no restrictions at the Böllinger Höfe factory, which manufactures the R8 and e-tron GT luxury sports cars. There, production is continuing as usual.

The other two lines, which focus on the Audi A3, A4, and A5, are operational at least on some days, but only in one shift each. This consists of one early shift Monday through Thursday and one night shift Tuesday through Thursday.

Production of the A4 and A5 models will be halted at the Neckarsulm plant, while the A6, A7, and A8 models will be produced from Monday to Thursday. The A6 and A7 will only be manufactured in a single shift.

The overall situation, according to a spokeswoman for the Neckarsulm site, is slightly better than the previous week.

The A4, A5, A6, and A7 models were completely halted the previous week, while the A8 was produced in a single shift.
