PARIS (Reuters) – Carmaker Stellantis will halt production at its Rennes-La Janais Citroen plant in Brittany July 3 due to a chip shortage, a spokesperson told Reuters on Wednesday, confirming French media reports.

Another production halt at the Sochaux Peugeot (OTC:PUGOY) plant in eastern France was extended until the end of next week, Stellantis added, also citing semiconductor supply problems.
