Volkswagen said, on Wednesday, it would further cut car production at its main plant in northern Germany due to a shortage of semiconductors that has hit the industry worldwide.

Staff producing the Tiguan, Touran and Seat’s Tarraco models at its Wolfsburg site will work reduced hours, the group said in a statement.

Production of its bestselling Golf model has already been affected.
