Car Production Up in April
Provisional output data released yesterday by the Office for National Statistics shows that UK car production rose 10.6 per cent, or 13,689 units, in April.
This puts the year-to-date total above the 2004 level for first time this year.
Both output for home and export volumes rose by over 10 per cent last month.
“Despite problems at Longbridge, today’s figures show that the UK still has a strong vehicle manufacturing base”, said SMMT chief executive Christopher Macgowan.
