VAG Factories Suspending Production

Post by CJJE » Tue Mar 17, 2020 1:40 pm

Not so good news if you're waiting for a new car!

According to Sky News:

The world's largest car manufacturer is preparing to close its factories as it seeks to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Volkswagen warned that it expected 2020 to be a difficult year, as it announced production would temporarily cease at plants in Spain, Portugal, Slovakia and Italy before the end of this week.

Most of the company's other factories will begin preparing to suspend production, probably for two or three weeks, VW said.

Chief executive Herbert Diess added: "Given the present significant deterioration in the sales situation and the heightened uncertainty regarding parts supplies to our plants, production is to be suspended in the near future at factories operated by group brands."

Even if it was built would you be able to get it delivered? How many car showrooms will remain open? My firm is locking down, by the weekend all its employees will be working from home.

Roof bars? I have a towbar; what is the weight of a wing!

Shotto, that's a totally pathetic excuse. Simply buy a white van (the older the better), open windows on both sides, slide wing in, drive! What could possibly go wrong? Just be careful on narrow roads, try not to decapitate too many cyclists. Bonus: the faster you go.....
