Stellantis NV's brand Opel will stop production at a site in Germany until next year due to semiconductor shortages.

"It's planned that production at the plant in Eisenach will be paused temporarily from next week," a spokesman for Opel told Dow Jones Newswires on Thursday. Employees will receive short-time work benefits, he said.

Production in Eisenach should start again at the beginning of 2022 if the current difficult supply situation eases.

Trade publication Automobilwoche first reported the temporary plant closure.
