BMW said on Tuesday nearly all its German plants were affected by an ongoing shortage of semiconductors that are preventing the luxury carmaker from completing around 10,000 cars.

The Munich-based company earlier this month said the bottleneck, which has affected carmakers around the world, has led to 30,000 vehicles in lost production so far this year.
