Subaru Motor reportedly said on Friday it would cut production at its Gunma plants in Japan in July due to a global shortage of semiconductors.

“It is part of the production adjustment due to shortage of semiconductors,” a Subaru spokesman told Reuters.

The plants would be idle on 16 July.

Separately, Suzuki Motor told the news agency it was considering slashing production in July at its Kosai and Sagara plants in Shizuoka, Japan, for two and seven days, respectively.

While the dates have not been set yet, a company spokesman told Reuters Suzuki was “continuing to make adjustments to minimise the impact”.
