Fiat 500L

Fiat Chrysler Chrysler (FCA) has resumed production at its Serbian plant, after stopping it in mid-March in response to the coronavirus outbreak, according to Tanjug news agency.

The government and automakers had enforced shutdowns of factories to control the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Due to the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on markets, FCA halted production at its Italian plants and in Serbia and Poland on March 16.

Around 2,000 employees returned to production halls in the central Serbian city of Kragujevac a day before to prepare for the resumption of manufacturing of the 500L model, the Tanjug quoted Zoran Stanic, a union leader as saying.

In February, FCA also temporarily stopped production at its Serbian plant, a major contributor to the country’s economy, because of a disruption in the supply of parts manufactured in Wuhan, China which was caused by the spread of the coronavirus.
