Ford Motor slashes North American car production significantly in July due to continued shortage of semiconductor chips affecting the global auto industry.
The automaker said Wednesday that the problem will halt or cut production at eight plants, including six in the US, for varying periods of time next month and before early August due to the problem. Affected products range from Ford F-150 and Ford Bronco Sport to Ford Mustang and Ford Explorer.
Separately, the automaker said that production of the Ford Ranger pickup truck and new Ford Bronco SUV, which have recently begun shipping to dealerships, at its Michigan assembly plant will be phased out for three weeks from July 5-26 due to “non-stock outs.” A company spokesman declined to provide details.
Ford said earlier this year that it expects to lose about 50% of its car production in the second quarter due to a chip problem. Ford said it expects to run short of $ 2.5 billion in profits and will not release an estimated 1.1 million units this year due to a shortage.
Ford also said the latest production cut due to chip shortages is to prioritize “customer cars that are produced without scarce parts.
