Europe wants and needs to get back to work. That's everyone is happy to read the latest headline from Bloomberg. Last night they reported that Audi, Hyundai, & Renault are ready to resume production. Because suppliers are still closed, each automaker is taking a cautious approach. Audi's engine plant in Hungary is one of the largest in the world.

Because they supply engines to Porsche, Bentley, Lamborghini, they are the most essential workers in the VW empire. Hyundai will start up their assembly lines in the Czech Republic on Monday, running 2 shifts instead of 3. Last but not least. Renault has resumed operations in Portugal, and their plants in Romania are planned to restart on Tuesday. Our hope is that these brave actions will jump-start the economy, so stay with us for all your automotive news.
