DETROIT (Reuters) - Volkswagen AG's top Americas executive said on Tuesday the global chip shortage will run well into next year.

"Without a doubt, this shortage is going to go well into 2022, at least the second half of '22," Scott Keogh said on a panel at the Reuters Events Automotive Summit.

He added while the issue may ease in the fourth quarter of this year, the industry still cannot meet market demand.
