Many companies today suffer from a shortage of microchips, including the largest automakers. Many of them dig out of the production of cars without the necessary auto components. This decision was made by the management of Nissan.

Nissan CEO Makoto Uchida said that due to the lack of microchips, the company will revise its production plan for this year. According to him, in 2021, half a million fewer cars will come off the assembly line of the brand’s plants than the Japanese were originally going to produce.

This is a rather serious step, dictated by necessity. At the same time, difficulties do not end with one lack of chips. The Japanese automaker is also forced to solve the problem of more expensive raw materials, however, the specific steps that the brand has to take in this regard are not named.

As for the shortage of microprocessors, which has affected many areas of the market, Uchida gives a fairly optimistic forecast.

He believes that the deficit will be eliminated in the near future and return to previous volumes of supplies. In this case, Nissan will again adjust the production plan.
