The global chip shortage slamming the auto industry will shut down five Stellantis plants in the United States, Canada and Mexico for several weeks beginning Monday.

The affected plants produce trucks, SUVs, minivans and high-horsepower sedans, highlighting the broad disruption facing the industry.

The company, formed from the merger earlier this year of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Peugeot-maker PSA Group, confirmed the news Friday afternoon.

The unexpected shutdowns will directly affect more than 18,300 workers at the five plants, but also an unknown number of suppliers and their employees.

Here are the plants and what they produce:

Warren Truck, north of Detroit — Ram 1500 Classic pickup


Belvidere Assembly in Illinois — Jeep Cherokee SUV

Brampton Assembly, northwest of Toronto in Ontario — Chrysler Charger, Challenger and 300 sedans

Windsor Assembly, in Ontario but near Detroit — Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid minivans

Toluca Assembly, west of Mexico City — Jeep Compass
