Chip Scarcity: Nissan Delays US Factory Restart For Another 2 Weeks

Nissan has postponed the restart of its Tennessee car plant for another two weeks due to an ongoing semiconductor shortage. The sedan and SUV plant in Smyrna, Tennessee was expected to return to service on August 30 but will now be closed until September 12.

The continued stop of the assembly line is the latest development for the North American auto industry, which was hit by a global semiconductor shortage caused by the rise in the use of personal electronics and a halt in the auto industry in mid-2020 as the Covid-19 pandemic swept across the world.

Ford and Stellantis recently announced additional production cuts, with Ford cutting production of its best-selling full-size F-150 pickup truck, which consumes steel and aluminum, at its Kansas City, Missouri plant, and cut production to one crew per his car plant in Dearborn, Michigan.
