VW to Partially Idle Mexican Plant from end of June until early August

The global slowdown in car sales is forcing Volkswagen to shut down parts of its Puebla assembly plant in Mexico beginning from next week and until early August. Union spokesman Arturo Monter was quoted by Reuters as saying that the temporary idling of parts of the factory would help preserve jobs and aid the German firm in making adjustments to the assembly lines.

Currently Volkswagen's only factory in North America, the Puebla plant produces cars like the New Beetle, Bora and Bora Variant models, with most models being exported to the U.S, Canada and Europe.
