Volkswagen (VW) has announced a temporary suspension of production for its ID.3 and Cupra Born electric cars at its manufacturing facilities in Zwickau and Dresden, Germany.

This decision is attributed to a decrease in demand, as confirmed by a spokesperson from the company on Tuesday.

In response to the current market conditions, Volkswagen will reduce vehicle production during the autumn holidays in Saxony, spanning from October 2nd to October 13th, at the Zwickau plant, as previously reported by Mobility Portal Europe.
