Yanfeng cyberattack disrupts production at Stellantis

November 21, 2023


A cyberattack that hit automotive parts production at Yanfeng International Automotive Technology in the US this week has had a knock-on effect at Stellantis, with the carmaker forced to halt assembly on certain lines.

In a short statement Stellantis said: “Due to an issue with an external supplier, production at some North America assembly plants has been disrupted. We are monitoring the situation and working with the supplier to mitigate any further impact to our operations.”

The carmaker said it would not provide information on affected plants or any other details. There has been no comment from Yanfeng.
Yangfeng manufactures key parts like seats, interiors, and electronics, among other components. Yanfeng also supplies General Motors but the carmaker has not yet said if it will have any impact on its current production schedule.
