The Coronavirus pandemic, added to the crisis caused by the shortage of microchips and semiconductors, had a strong impact on the production of Volkswagen in 2021 at its main plant, the one in Wolfsburg: a total of approximately 400,000 vehicles will come off the assembly lines of the German brand’s headquarters, a net figure lower than the initial forecasts that spoke of a target of 1 million vehicles. In view of 2022, however, the situation should significantly improve.
In fact, new estimates speak of a 43% growth in production in Wolfsburg in 2022, for a total of 570,000 vehicles assembled. This was announced by Daniela Cavallo, head of the Volkswagen works council who recently had several disagreements with the current CEO of the German group Herbert Diess, due to which the latter’s position is still in the balance: according to the trade unionist , despite the situation will tend to improve dramatically, the impact of the microchip crisis will continue to be felt, and for this very reason Volkswagen has decided not to prepare the production program for next year yet. Cavallo, who spoke to the microphones of the German newspaper Wolfsburger Allgemeine Zeitung, admitted that there will be risks to be faced in 2022, but Volkswagen will not be submissive for this: production in Wolfsburg will increase, it remains only to understand with certainty to what extent will make.
