Volkswagen (VW) has announced it will be able to restart production at two of its electric vehicle (EV) factories sooner than expected.

Last month the German automaker was forced to shut down production at their factories in Dresden and Zwickau due to a difficulties in obtaining wiring harnesses from their supplier in western Ukraine.

Without providing a specific date, VW now says they will be able to resume production next week. (via Automotive News).

The Zwickau plant is a key piece of VWs EV puzzle as it produces models like VW ID.3, ID.4, VW ID.5, Audi Q4 e-tron, Skoda Enyaq and Cupra el-Born.

The Transparent Factory in Dresden also produces the ID.3.

VW isn’t the only automaker to face production issues due to affected supply chain logistics.

Porsche has shut down production of the Taycan, and Ford and BMW have also said they will also have to cut production.
