The temporary suspension of production at Volkswagen’s German enterprises will last for four additional days – until April 9th.

Such a solution is distributed by Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Volkswagen Group Components, the company said. Factories are located in Dresden, Emden, Osnabruck, Wolfsburg, Zwickau, Hanover, Brunswick, Kassel, Salzgitter and Chemnitz.

Volkswagen’s decision was prompted by a continued drop in demand for cars, as well as the supply of components.

According to a member of the Volkswagen Board of Directors responsible for production and logistics, Andreas Tostmann, employee health is a priority for the company. Actions after resuming production will be safe for engineers.

Volkswagen previously banned working in factories in Italy, Portugal, Slovakia and Spain.
