PSA/Peugeot-Citroen SA will suspend production at its Slovak assembly plant for 13 days over the coming three months due to a drop in demand, the daily Hospodarske Noviny said on Monday.
The carmaker will halt operations in Trnava, western Slovakia, on April 6, then for six days in May and for six days in June, the Slovak daily cited PSA/Peugeot-Citroen Slovakia as saying.
The company was unavailable for an immediate comment.
PSA told the newspaper it plans to use the disruption, expected to cut down production by about 11,000 cars, for technology upgrades and to prepare for new projects at its site, where it builds the Peugeot 207 subcompact and the Citroen C3 Picasso small minivan.
PSA's factory produced 205,000 cars last year.
