The decision to pause production of the abovementioned cars has been taken as the carmaker has been facing a severe supply chain crisis. Ukraine is one of the key suppliers for wiring harnesses for Audi. With the war going on, the supply chain for the crucial component has collapsed completely. While some suppliers have completely stopped production, some have severely restricted production volume. This disruption has resulted in Audi announcing a production halt for the specific models. This would result in a delivery impact for the car brand across the world.
