Volkswagen will suspend production of VW ID3 and Cupra Born battery-electric cars at its Zwickau and Dresden plants in Germany in the first two weeks of October due to weaker demand.
VW Cuts Output of ID3 and Cupra Born EVs on Lower Demand
Volkswagen has announced that it will temporarily suspend production of its VW ID3 and Cupra Born battery-electric cars at its Zwickau and Dresden plants in Germany. This decision comes in response to weaker demand in the market. The production reduction will take place during the autumn holidays in Saxony, lasting from October 2nd to October 13th at the Zwickau plant. Production of the ID3 in Dresden will be suspended from October 2nd and will resume on October 16th. The exact number of employees affected has not been disclosed. This move comes as VW faces increasing competition from Tesla and Chinese automakers, along with dampened demand in the European EV market due to high inflation and subsidy cuts.
