UK car manufacturing up 9.3% in November

Latest figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show that total UK car manufacturing was up 9.3% in November, with 150,084 cars built. Production for export was up 10.8% in the month with domestic production up 3.4%.

The latest figures put year-to-date volumes 3.8% ahead of the same period in 2014.

Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive, said: “November’s manufacturing gains are encouraging, and put the car industry in a strong position with one month left in the year. Particularly pleasing is the recent pick-up in export production, which is proof that despite challenges in some global markets, the UK continues to build cars that appeal to consumers across the world.”
