As we reported in another thread here, Electrive reports the VW factory added two new production lines for the upcoming ID. Buzz that is expected to arrive early next year. “Not only is the technology state-of-the-art, we have also planned and set up the workplaces in accordance with the latest ergonomic findings,” says Lars Peters, Head of Vehicle Construction at the Hannover factory.
Changes were also made to the paint shop at the factory to accommodate the latest commercial vans and the ID. Buzz.
However, new reports from CleanTechnica indicate that VW plants across Germany are halting production due to the global chip shortage. Apparently the official VW line is that they have "a delivery bottleneck for semiconductors that were needed for electric cars as the reason".
Who knows how this will affect the production of the VW Buzz and whether they can realistically meet demand next year.
