Japanese automobile concern Subaru suspends the work of its three plants in the Japanese prefecture of Gumma, Kyodo News Agency reported.

Work will be suspended due to problems with the supply of parts amid a lockdown in Shanghai due to an outbreak of the coronavirus. The plants will not operate on June 2 and 3. The same three plants had already stopped work in April.

Suzuki announced a partial suspension of work for three days due to disruptions in the supply of semiconductors.

Earlier it was informed about Toyota's decision to stop 16 lines at 10 factories from June 6th to 10th. Reduction of production will affect 50 thousand cars. In this connection the company changed worldwide production forecast for June from 850,000 to 800,000 cars. At the same time, the plan for the whole year at 9.7 million remains the same, as well as the average plan for summer months at 850 thousand per month.
