BUDAPEST : Japanese carmaker Suzuki is going to halt production at its factory in Hungary for two weeks in September due to a global shortage of microchips, a spokesperson from the company told news agency MTI on Tuesday.

The plant in Esztergom will suspend production from Sept. 6-8. Daimler's Mercedes factory in Hungary as well as Audi's Hungarian unit both suspended output earlier this summer due to the semiconductor shortage.
