Volkswagen AG's Czech car maker Skoda said Thursday that it will stop production at two local plants for one week due to semiconductor shortages.

"Recent COVID-19 outbreaks in Asia, for example in Malaysia, are forcing semiconductor manufacturers to close their factories again. This has resulted in industry-wide adjustments to car production, and SKODA AUTO is also affected," the company said.

The auto maker said it will halt production lines at plants in Mlada Boleslav and Kvasiny in calendar week 39, which will lead to some vehicles being delivered late to customers.

"However, we expect that semiconductor production will gradually be ramped up again in the fourth quarter. As a result, we expect the overall supply situation to ease by the end of the year," Skoda said.
