MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - German carmaker Audi AG (NSUG.DE) said on Wednesday that it will suspend production at its plant in Mexico’s Puebla state from March 23 through April 13 as the coronavirus hits global supply chains.

Audi said in a statement it is lacking parts at its plant in Mexico, where it produces the Audi Q5, because of the impact on supply chains.
