Chip shortage hits Nissan production - sources

Japan's Nissan will adjust production at several factories next month due to the global chip shortage.

Three sources with direct knowledge of the situation told Reuters of the plan on Tuesday (July 22).

Japan's third-largest automaker will reportedly halt production at a factory in the east of the country for a total of three days in July, and will idle another plant in the south for two days.

The sources added that another factory will cut production hours.

A spokesperson for Nissan said it would be "adjusting production" and "taking necessary actions to ensure recovery".

Like other automakers, Nissan has been grappling with a worldwide chip supply crunch, which it says will likely affect the production of 500,000 vehicles this year.

At its AGM on Tuesday (July 22), the company said it was seeking to minimise the negative impact of the shortage.
