On October 11, Plascar, a maker of plastic parts for automobiles, confirmed it is going to set up a factory in the city of São Paulo, Brazil.
The new plant will occupy an area of more than 22,000 square meters and will initially produce car bumpers for OEMs in the Vale do Paraíba region.
With production expected to start in the first half of 2022, Paulo Silvestri, President of Plascar said, “We will start operations with injection machines, an automatic paint booth and bumper assembly and sequencing devices.”
The new plant will be Plascar's fourth factory in Brazil, following units in Jundiaí, Betim and Varginha.
The company's portfolio includes plastic components such as bumpers, door sides, instrument panels, taillights and headlights.

The familiar Charles Dickens quote, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” seems apt to describe the current situation in the Indian auto market. The auspicious festival season, when buyers typically clamour to buy new vehicles, is imminent, but the shortage of semiconductors will leave automakers struggling to fulfil the spike in demand.

In the early stages of 2021, our thinking was that the chip scarcity would be resolved within six months and that any production loss in India would be recovered in the second half of the year. As the deadly second wave of the pandemic hit the country in April, triggering localised lockdowns and plant closures, we believed at the time that the pandemic-induced production disruptions would allow OEMs to eke out their supply of chips just long enough to remain largely unscathed by the shortage.

In reality, however, the situation deteriorated rapidly after Malaysia – a key sourcing hub in the global semiconductor supply chain – reimposed lockdowns in June to control the renewed spread of COVID-19. This has left chips in scant supply, so much so that market leader Suzuki was forced to shut down its Hansalpur, Gujarat plant for three days in August and move some of its production lines from two- to one-shift operations. Worse still, Suzuki expected its cumulative Indian output in September to plunge by 60% from normal levels. Its supply of chips, however, may have improved in October as Suzuki is anticipating a lower hit to output, of 40% versus its normal level.

With India’s auspicious festival season just around the corner, the supply crunch could not have come at a worse time for automakers and dealers alike. Passenger Vehicle wholesales already dropped from 286,000 units in July to 252,000 units in August, despite strong enquiries and bookings, entirely due to weaker output volumes. Furthermore, advance data for September suggest that sales shrank to fewer than 200,000 units.

“Supply is becoming a bigger problem currently due to [the] shortage of semiconductors, even though there is high demand for passenger vehicles. Every dealer by now starts planning for a bigger offtake in anticipation of a bumper festive [season] but due to supply issues, inventory levels are at lowest levels during this financial year”, said Vinkesh Gulati, president of the Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA).

FADA further noted that, for the first time, buyers may not be able to purchase the vehicle of their choice, or benefit from lucrative incentives during the festival season because of the ongoing supply-side constraints and limited product availability. The lack of vehicle supply and ensuing long waiting periods could also drive buyers away from the market.

Given the prolonged and worsening state of the semiconductor crisis, we have reduced our 2021 and 2022 Passenger Vehicle Sales forecasts to 2.89 million units (+23% year-on-year) and 3.22 million units (+12% year-on-year), respectively. This contrasts with corresponding forecasts of 3.18 million and 3.37 million units, respectively, at the start of the year.

Gloomier still is the likelihood that these lost sales will not be recovered in later years, due to a sluggish economic recovery and the risk of a third wave of the pandemic. In short, the confluence of the additional disruptions from the pandemic and the chip shortage will now constrain the pace of recovery in the Indian Passenger Vehicle market.

On October 8, 2021, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. unveiled a production line at its Tochigi Plant featuring the Nissan Intelligent Factory initiative. This unique initiative supports the manufacture of next-generation vehicles using innovative technologies and contributes to the realization of carbon neutrality.
Nissan Intelligent Factory enables Nissan to:
1. Use robots that have inherited the skills of Takumi (master technicians) to manufacture next-generation vehicles; of the highest quality,
2. Create an improved environment where a wide range of people can work comfortably, and;
3. Realize a zero-emission production system, thereby accelerating efforts to achieve a decarbonized society.
Tochigi Plant is scheduled to start production of the all-new Nissan Ariya crossover electric vehicle this fiscal year.
Technologies based on Nissan Intelligent Factory include Simultaneous Underfloor Mounting Operation (SUMO), Automated tightening and alignment of suspension links, Integrated painting and baking of bodies and bumpers, IoT-based quality assurance management system, and others. As for the SUMO, multiple powertrain components that were conventionally mounted through labor-intensive, multiple processes are now batch-mounted from a pallet. Real-time vehicle position measurement and highly accurate (
±0.05 mm) component position correction is used.
Hideyuki Sakamoto, Nissan's executive vice president for manufacturing and supply chain management, said, “By rolling out the Nissan Intelligent Factory initiative globally, starting at the Tochigi Plant, we will more flexibly, efficiently and effectively manufacture next-generation vehicles for a decarbonized society.”
Nissan aims to achieve carbon neutrality across its operations and the life cycle of its products by 2050 1. The company aims to realize carbon neutrality in manufacturing by promoting innovations to support higher productivity in vehicle assembly, starting with the Nissan Intelligent Factory initiative, and by improving energy and materials efficiencies at plants.
