Parts shortage in Brazil stops automakers for up to 2 months

In Brazil, the first to stop for lack of electronic circuits was Honda’s factory in Sumaré (SP), for a week in February and ten days this month. General Motors has suspended all production at the Gravataí (RS) complex, where Onix, the best selling car in the country, is produced. All employees are on collective holiday until day 20. According to Anfavea, international experts estimate that the supply crisis should result in a fall of 3% to 5% of global sales this year, expected between 76 million and 78 million vehicles.
