Kia has had to suspend operations at two Korean car factories due to the threat of the spread of coronavirus. Such information on Thursday, September 17, was shared by the Renhap portal, based on a source.
More than 6,000 workers from two auto companies in Seoul have taken extra leave. At least 9 employees of assembly lines of factories tested positive for coronavirus. The decision to restore the production process will be made by a commission consisting of doctors.
Kia enterprises in the Korean capital are producing the K9 sedan, the Stinger liftback, and the new generation Cadenza minivan. According to a portal source, the automaker will face significant production losses due to downtime. Just two auto enterprises can produce approximately 320,000 cars a year.
In addition, it was recently noted that the new South Korean crossover Kia Sportage has once again been caught by photo spies. It should be emphasized that this new generation cross should debut in the middle of next year.
