The Association of European Automobile Manufacturers (ACEA) warns of a serious crisis in the industry due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to ACEA forecasts, due to the suspension of car factories, supply disruptions and the closure of DCs, about 14 million people may remain without their jobs. Association Director General Eric-Mark Watham called the series of events in the automotive industry, which followed immediately after the spread of the new virus, the biggest crisis. So, despite the support from the government of the EU countries, car manufacturers stop the conveyors of their enterprises, and dealers close showrooms.

 At the same time, Whitem calls on companies to maintain jobs, but for this the European Commission will need to take a number of special measures for the operational reanimation of the industry.

 Another aspect is the production and supply of automotive components. Uninterrupted logistics will be able to support the work of emergency services, including ambulance and rescuers, at the proper level.
