Khodrocar - Along with Toyota Motors, which recently announced a shutdown in China, Nissan, Honda, General Motors as well as Peugeot Citroen have announced their employees will leave China and will leave soon.
Accordingly, global carmakers are not only expelling their employees from China but are also thinking of halting production because the virus can paralyze the whole country, so most major carmakers travel to China have been restricted or banned because of the rapid spread of the virus.
"Monitoring will continue, and Toyota has no factory in China, so it doesn't need to hire any Chinese.” Eric booth, speaker of Toyota motors said.
Although Tesla Automotive, which recently opened its first factory in China, near Shanghai, has not commented, CEO Robert Bush has warned that the Corona virus could affect the global auto parts supply chain. Let alone because this chain is largely dependent on China.
Bush needs China as a global manufacturing base for the export of electric motors and electronics to electric cars and will undoubtedly disrupt the supply chain if current conditions continue.
This has been the case since China has long been a good country for cheap cars, and based on the well-known brands of the industry competing to enter the country. On the other hand, China has held the record for many years and has been recognized as the world's first carmaker for many years, which can undoubtedly have contributed to the decline in car production.
According to the latest researches more than 7700 have coronavirus which 170 of them has been died. Now we have to wait and see what will this virus could make against the auto industry.
