Problems in car business – level 1

13-09-2021 07:00

One of the biggest car shows begins in Munich, Germany. It is the first big event since the start of the coronavirus. Many people are excited.

Carmakers still have many problems right now. Carmakers do not have enough electric parts for their cars. They must make fewer cars.

Many companies focus on electric cars now. Electric cars need better electric parts than other cars. This is a big problem for companies. Another problem is the price of materials is going up.

Carmakers think that the problems will continue next year and maybe the following year, too.

Difficult words: carmaker (a company which makes cars), focus (to be very interested in something more than in other things), continue (to keep happening or doing something in the future).
