Almost all major vehicle manufacturers are closing their factories or considerably reducing vehicle output due to the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The virus is causing issues for manufacturers with supply chain delays, increased consideration for the health and safety of workers and a decline in the sales of vehicles across the industry - manufacturers having no other option but to halt production.
