Not just cars, a neighbour is an HGV driver and the company he works for are waiting for new trucks that were ordered months ago. They normally would have been on fleet well before now. Presently they are being quoted delivery in early 2022.

Fully agree that this might be something to do with part shortages but not quite understanding how it can be attributed to staff working from home.

I work in the automotive sector and we build cars. In short, we are having a record breaking year and can't keep up with demand. All this with over 80% of office staff, including those involved directly with production, working from home. I can assure you nobody is having staff build things at home wink

Sadly this is the case across most brands selling a form of transportation. Some brands are being a bit more clever in keeping production going. i.e. almost all new Porsche models that have a power adjustable steering column are being delivered with the manual version due to the chip shortage. The power bit can be easily retrofitted once supply comes back on board. Better to get the cars into a customers hands vs. sitting idle.

Fingers crossed this should all clear up within a year. Seems long but it is what it is unfortunately

Last year when not only car manufacturers but others as well reduced or stopped the production of their products entirely and did not reorder from the chip manufacturers and these same chip manufacturers decreased the production of low end chips and concentrated on the production of high end chips for PC's/Laptops for the increase in sales for "new" home workers. Hopefully you can see how home workers have effected this situation. Let alone how working from home has effected industries that support offices or feed workers or transport them. There's also the slight issue of one the major chip factories going up in smoke as well.

Working from home will indeed have affected the chip industry if the chip worker worked from home.

According to this report, BMW was already unable to build 30,000 cars. There are many possibilities of a bottleneck but this could also be a reason for Morgan not to continue.
