UK engine production down in February | Automotive Industry News

Uk motor production output declined 20.five{7e488363c11ee5ef50445c8c4fa770b6e6e4f99e57faea264a05ac52abb3ffe0} in February with a hundred and seventy,271 models created.

Production for domestic and abroad marketplaces fell 13.one{7e488363c11ee5ef50445c8c4fa770b6e6e4f99e57faea264a05ac52abb3ffe0} and 25.nine{7e488363c11ee5ef50445c8c4fa770b6e6e4f99e57faea264a05ac52abb3ffe0} respectively.

Engine output has fallen by a quarter so far in 2021, down to 338,562 models.   

Mike Hawes, SMMT main government, claimed: “”Now 1 yr into the coronavirus pandemic, Uk motor makers have witnessed their output noticeably influenced. With subdued car marketplaces at dwelling and overseas, new customs procedures with the EU, and world-wide supply chain concerns impacting the sector, this month’s figures are further more evidence of the demanding circumstances. There is, luckily, a roadmap out of the pandemic in this place but, with the greater part of our engines exported, we need to have to see world-wide marketplaces on the road to restoration before Uk makers can seem forward with assurance.”
