FAW-Volkswagen Automobile Co., Ltd. resumed production at its four production bases across China as of Monday amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The four bases of the passenger car joint venture between China FAW Group Co., Ltd. and Volkswagen AG are in Changchun, Chengdu, Qingdao and Tianjin.

Wang Kaiyu, deputy Party secretary of the Changchun production base, said four out of five production lines at the Changchun base resumed production on Monday, and a total of 3,825 workers have returned to work.

Production in the second phase of its production base in the southern city of Foshan resumed on Friday.

Affected by the epidemic, the resumption of production in the wake of the Chinese Lunar New Year holiday was delayed by about two weeks.

The carmaker said it will increase production efficiency to make up for the affected output.

FAW-Volkswagen, China’s largest automotive joint venture in terms of vehicle sales, delivered around 2.13 million vehicles in 2019. Enditem
