Global car producers Volkswagen and Toyota's factories in Tianjin have been shut down since Monday as the city battles a new epidemic outbreak.

While the factories remain closed until further notice, the production lines in other parts of China will try to make up for the potential capacity losses, industry insiders said, adding that the impact from the suspension should be manageable so long as the latest outbreak is soon reined in.

Due to the recent Covid-19 outbreaks, both the FAW-VW vehicle plant and component factory VW Automatic Transmission in Tianjin were shut down on Monday, Volkswagen Group China said on Thursday.

Both plants have conducted Covid-19 testing for all their employees this week, the German auto company said.

"We hope to resume production very soon and catch up with lost production. The top priority remains the health and well-being of our employees," said a source with Volkswagen Group China.

Meanwhile, FAW Toyota also said that its factory in Tianjin has suspended production and all employees have taken nucleic acid tests, according to media reports.
