The automaker has said the shortage of electronic components such as microchips had a minor impact on the production of vehicles during May 2022. It also said that the production of May 2022 is not comparable with the number of vehicles produced in the same month a year ago, as manufacturing was severely impacted due to Covid-19 related disruptions at that time.
