Ford to halt Flat Rock plant production on chips shortage
Ford Motor Co confirmed late on Thursday it will halt production next week at its Flat Rock plant where it assembles the Mustang because of a shortage of semiconductor chips.
The No 2 US automaker had previously said it had planned to idle the plant for two days this week. Automotive News reported the production cuts earlier.
Ford said on Wednesday it had built about 53,000 vehicles but not shipped them as they awaited final parts held up by the chips shortage.
