BRATISLAVA--French auto giant PSA Peugeot Citroen said Monday it had temporarily suspended production for 2-hours at its Slovak plant and would freeze output for four more days in February over low demand from the EU.
“The demand for new cars in Europe has been falling continuously and this trend reflects in the reduction of several carmakers' output,” the company's spokesman Peter Svec told AFP.
“PSA in Trnava, western Slovakia, has halted production on Monday and will freeze output for four more days in February,” he added.
