Volkswagen AG’s Audi brand will halt production of its A3 compact model at its plant in Ingolstadt, Germany, during February due to slow sales.
The two-door A3 isn’t sold in the United States right now but is set to arrive later this fall. Audi says that demand for the A3 has been low in due to the expiration of Germany’s version of Cash for Clunkers.
According to AutoObserver, more than half of the plant’s 4,500 employees will be out of work during the week of Feb. 15.
