Volvo’s factory in Torslanda in Sweden must be closed due to a lack of microchips.

This is the second time in a short time period that the factory had to stop production due to a lack of microchips, also called semiconductors.

“It is very difficult right now, and it (note: the situation) changes from day to day,” spokesperson Maria Dagman told the newspaper Göteborgs-Posten.

The global shortage of microchips has sent shockwaves through the global economy and led to significant shortages in numerous industries.

  1. Time to return to (reliable) *mechanical* cars?
    I assume Volvo still has its 1950s models’ plans around somewhere.
