LJUBLJANA (Slovenia), May 20 (SeeNews) - Slovenian car maker Revoz, a unit of France's Renault, will lay off some 400 workers as orders have dropped due to the coronavirus crisis, local media reported.

The company will discontinue its night shifts, state news agency STA reported on Tuesday.

Revoz restarted production at reduced capacities on April 28, following a six-week suspension prompted by the coronavirus outbreak. Prior to the halt in operations, manufacturing was carried out in two and a half shifts.

Revoz manufactures the new Renault Clio 5 model as well as Renault Twingo and electric Smart Forfour EQ.

The Novo Mesto-based company is the only car manufacturer in Slovenia and one of the country's top exporters, employing some 3,400.
