Volkswagen and Porsche: same automobile group to which they belong, different vision on the microchip and semiconductor crisis. Because if on the one hand Porsche is convinced that the impact of the shortage of these components will not affect the business of the brand, which indeed according to forecasts will mark a new record in 2022, on the other Volkswagen is much more pessimistic: according to the Wolfsburg brand , indeed, the situation will remain unstable at least until 2023although in the second half of this year it will show the first signs of attenuation.
“The unstable situation will also affect us beyond the first half of this year“Murat Aksel, head of purchases on the Volkswagen board of directors, commented to the microphones of the German magazine Automobilwoche. The board member of the German brand speaks clearly of structural problems at stake: demand will continue to grow, and the inability of car manufacturers to meet it due to a lack of key components that will slow production could represent an increasingly insurmountable obstacle. The announced goal to be able to remedy this situation is to collaborate closely with suppliers of components such as microchips and semiconductors, instead of asking them for damages related to non-deliveries. According to Volkswagen, it will be possible to make more reliable predictions in 2023, when more semiconductor production capacity will be available.
