"The shortage of chips hurts us a lot," Skoda CEO Thomas Schaefer told the Augsburger Allgemeine newspaper, "especially because the demand for our cars is very high at the moment." Schäfer thinks the global chip shortage will continue for a few more years, "but hopefully not to the same extent as in 2021".
He expects some relaxation in the chip market in the coming weeks. Malaysia - a major supplier of chips - has just come out of a long corona lockdown, which has meant that the country has hardly produced any computer chips in recent months. Delivery will resume very soon.
Skoda is not the only manufacturer suffering from the global chip shortage. Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes, Toyota and Volkswagen, among others, have already had to temporarily stop car production. In the Netherlands, VDL Nedcar also had to deal with assembly line closures.
