In June, car manufacturing may be suspended due to low demand and lack of parts.
Nissan intends to resume working two shifts at its car manufacturing facility in St. Petersburg since May 18, TASS reports quoting a spokesperson for the company.
The factory management will monitor the market demand, which has not recovered from the COVID-19 crisis yet. The market conditions could lead to a suspension of car manufacturing in order to adjust the inventory. Another reason for the possible suspension of operations is the deficit of car parts supplied from Europe.
The St. Petersburg facility of Nissan suspended operations after the presidential order on days-off issued on March 30.
The Russian car market is expected to plummet this year. According to PwC, new car sales can drop as much as 30%.
