For South Africa, that will not be for a while still.

On the plus side, open cast mining is back in business – 100%, while underground mining is allowed to ramp up to 50% and must stay that way until we move into Level 2.

There’s no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a substantial effect on the automotive industry, as well as on most other industries that develop and manufacture products. But it’s also forced companies like Ford to find new and innovative ways to continue moving forward with product development. Aside from finishing up the Mustang Mach-E’s development from home, designers and engineers have also been working on a brand new Ford race car, and they’ve done it entirely through the use of virtual reality.
During the COVID-19 lockdown, Ford designers collaborated on new vehicles in a virtual design studio.
