Another hard blow in the French factories of Stellantis in Rennes and Sochaux.

For lack of semiconductors in sufficient quantity, these two sites cease production until July 1st.

In total, 2,000 employees are affected by the cessation of activity.

We are stopping tonight until July 1 inclusive due to the semiconductor crisis.

Since the beginning of April we have been able to get by and work at full speed

, ”we said on Wednesday in Rennes, where the Peugeot 5008 and Citroën C5 Aircross are produced.

For its part, the Sochaux plant, which produces the Peugeot 3008 and 5008, has already interrupted its activity since June 15.

With the consequence of the non-production of 12,000 vehicles.

The group's management indicates that a training system during the production stoppage must make it possible "

When they are not in training, the employees are placed in partial activity and receive 84% of their salary.

The shortage of semi-conductors, essential for the construction of vehicles, is far from over.

The leaders of the major automotive groups expect these disruptions to continue in 2023, and even in 2024. Manufacturers have had to sharply reduce their production and arbitrate the supply of chips by promoting the sale of hybrid and electric vehicles, more expensive.

This explains why their profitability was preserved despite a sharp drop in sales last year.
