PARIS — PSA Group has halted production of the Peugeot 308 at its plant in Sochaux, France, after the factory ran out of manual transmissions.

Production was halted for a second day on Wednesday.

“We had to stop one of the lines, which does the 308,” a PSA spokeswoman said, adding that she didn’t know when production would be restored.

Output of the six-speed manual unit may have been affected by summer production slowdowns.
