Ford has had to reduce its output of vehicles manufactured in the US, due to the ongoing chip shortage which is affecting a wide array of industries worldwide. Ford US spoke to Reuters last week who said that it would be either stopping or reducing production at eight of its factories in the US, Canada and Mexico. The start of this commenced today.

Ford has had issues relating to the chip shortages before, back in November it affected the Mach-E production meaning at the time, deliveries were delayed by up to six weeks.

This chip storage affected GM in September, where the company had to stop production all together at four of its factories in North America.
