Nissan to temporarily shut down U.S. plant due to shortage of semiconductors from Malaysia

NHK reported that Nissan Motor Company has decided to stop production at its main plant in Tennessee for two weeks from Aug. 16 as semiconductors from Malaysia are in short supply due to the rapid spread of the Delta variant in the Asian country. Nissan is expected to resume production at the plant from Aug. 30. The network added that while many automakers have been forced to cut back production due to the global shortage of semiconductors, the spread of the Delta variant in Asia is aggravating the shortage of semiconductors and affecting automakers.
