Makayová failed to specify the production of which car models would be resumed from April 27 in the Bratislava plant. Nonetheless, the HN daily reported that the production of the following models should be resumed: SUV Volkswagen Touareg, Audi Q7 and Q8, as well as small NSF models.Strict sanitary measures due to COVID-19 will remain in place, the company pledged, including the measurement of temperature and the disinfection of the workplace.
