Chinese EV automaker Nio Inc. said it halted car production and delayed deliveries as the coronavirus outbreak in China forced many of its suppliers to suspend manufacturing.

Deliveries will be delayed for a number of customers in the near term, a spokesperson at Shanghai-based Nio said. Several of the company’s suppliers remain offline, including those in Jilin and Shanghai, both of which are under lockdown as they battle the highly-infectious omicron variant, the company said.
