Automotive manufacturers in Europe have announced temporary production shutdowns at sites across the continent because of the problems being created by the measures taken by governments to restrict the spread of the 2019-nCoV coronavirus pandemic.

On Wednesday March 18, BMW, Toyota and Jaguar-Land Rover listed their sites that were intended for closure, while previous shutdowns included Groupe PSA, the maker of the Peugeot, Citroen, Opel and Vauxhall brands, as well as Volkswagen and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
