Feb. 7, 2020—Automakers and parts suppliers have shuttered factories in China following the coronavirus outbreak, according to a report by Reuters.
Most manufacturers will close the plants until Feb. 10 or later. Here is the list automakers and the date they will resume production:
- BMW: Feb. 17.
- Daimler: Feb. 10.
- Ford:Feb. 10
- Honda: Feb. 13
- Hyundai: Feb. 11 or Feb. 12

Tesla said last week that a delay to an increase in production in Shanghai due to a factory closure would hit profitability slightly.
