So far, thatlost vehicle production this year has been projected to be::

Ford, 362,663 fewer vehicles General Motors, 326,651 Renault Nissan Mitsubishi, 284,948 Volkswagen, 207,521 Stellantis, 202,486 Toyota, 113,555 Honda, 82,482

Automakers impacted to a lesser extent include BMW, Hyundai, Daimler and Tesla. These figures do not include joint ventures between the Detroit Three and their partners in China, Russia, Turkey and elsewhere. The GM numbers include its subsidiary GM Korea.

While vehicle production could be made up toward the end of the year, it is less likely with every month that passes.

Meanwhile, GM is the hardest hit automaker in North America based on current projections for the year:

GM, 277,030 vehicles Ford, 234,964 Stellantis, 162,087 Subaru, 45,272 Honda, 42,951 Renault Nissan Mitsubishi, 41,928 VW, 36,429 Toyota, 23,670 Tesla, 6,418 vehicles


Some reduction was seen by Mazda and Hyundai, too.

AutoForecast provided a highly detailed breakdown of company operations by individual plant, production schedules and rate of manufacturing.

GM is scheduled to release earnings Wednesday. Stellantis said it will reveal its shipments and revenues the same day.

"This is a growing concern," said Sam Fiorani, vice president of global vehicle forecasting at AutoForecast Solutions.
