Microchip shortages continue to hamper production at Ford in Oakville.

The local plant, which assembles the Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus crossovers, has had to scale back more vehicles than any other plant in North America, according to the most recent estimate by AutoForecast Solutions.

The production of some 13,700 vehicles at the Ford plant were cut this year due to the worldwide microchip shortage.

Cuts resulting from the shortages have resulted in the loss of some 55,300 vehicles across North American factories.

Plans for another 11,500 vehicles globally have also been shelved as a result of the factory microchip shortages.
