Vehicle Delivery Delays
We all know good things come to those who wait, but, when it comes to your dream vehicle. it’s natural to want it sooner rather than later. Unfortunately, industries across the world are facing stock shortages due to two significant reasons.
The first issue is related to a shortage of a chip called a semi-conductor that goes into most modern technology including your phone, tablet, games consoles and cars. The second, is that due to COVID-19, governments across the world have had to bring in restrictions causing temporary factory closures, setting global production further back and disrupting the global supply chain on some of your favourite Volkswagen vehicles.
We’re trying our best to secure as many microprocessors as possible, so the good news is that when your Volkswagen is ready, you’ll know it’s still using the best parts to give you complete confidence on the road. Existing stock is still available to buy so if you can’t wait for a custom-build car, talk to a dealer to see if they have your dream car already waiting.
Semi-conductor shortage and factory closures
Most electronics today are built with semi-conductors, also known as microprocessors, which are small devices that control how technology works. There’s currently a shortage of these semi-conductors with further delays brought on by COVID-19 and factory closures.
Different countries are facing different restrictions and quarantine regulations. As Volkswagen’s are manufactured across Europe and America, your car could take a little longer to arrive at your dealership. Read on for more information.
