    Jaguar Land Rover halts production because of chip shortage

    LONDON (AP) — Jaguar Land Rover said on Thursday it’s suspending production at two United Kingdom (UK) factories, becoming the latest automaker to fall victim to a global shortage of microchips.

    “Like other automotive manufacturers, we are currently experiencing some COVID-19 supply chain disruption, including the global availability of semiconductors,” the British luxury car brand said in a statement. The shortage “is having an impact on our production schedules and our ability to meet global demand for some of our vehicles”.

    Production will be halted for a “limited period” starting on Monday at its Halewood factory near Liverpool and at its Castle Bromwich plant near Birmingham in central England, the company said, without being more specific. Manufacturing at another plant in Solihull in central England will continue.

    The Halewood factory makes Jaguar’s XE, XF and F-type models, and the Castle Bromwich plant produces the Land Rover Discover Sport and Range Rover Evoque.
