BERLIN—Tesla plans to halt production at its biggest factory in Europe for two weeks as the conflict in the Red Sea continues to disrupt transport ships, raising the specter of a new supply-chain crisis for European manufacturers dependent on parts from China and other Asian countries.

Tesla said in a statement Friday that it would stop nearly all production at its factory near Berlin from Jan. 29 to Feb. 12 because of a lack of components.
