THE FIRST IN EUROPE – The epidemic of Coronavirus has had serious consequences for the industry in China, where many companies of car have had to stop production with the intent of limiting the spread of the virus. This is reflected in the production chain and is causing the shortage of parts. This problem has been felt for the first time also in Europe, because the FCA has been forced to temporarily stop the factory of Serbian Kragujevac, where are built the Fiat 500L and its derivatives: to be missing, according to rumours of the website Autonews, would be components of the audio system.
UNDER USED – the stop at The factory not comes as a surprise, because in the last days the number one of the FCA, Mike Manley, had raised the alarm about the possible closing of a plant in the group. The block forced the production strikes a plant already in trouble, because last year in Kragujevac have been made about 40,000 cars, the 25% of the maximum production capacity of the plant.
