UK car production plunged 41.5% year-on-year to 67,149 in September of 2021, the third consecutive month of decline and the worst-performing September since 1982, hampered by the production stoppages caused by the ongoing global shortage of semiconductors as well as the closure of one of the country’s largest plants. Despite the ongoing challenges, production of the latest battery-electric (BEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and hybrid (HEV) cars continues to break records, now representing almost a third (32.3%) of all cars made, equivalent to 21,679 units. It means UK car factories have turned out 158,710 alternatively fuelled cars since January. Production year-to-date remains marginally up, by 3.8%, with 656,776 cars, which has largely been driven by exports with 82.7% of production heading for markets abroad. However, the year-to-date total was down 33.5% over the 2019 performance and 44.1% – equivalent to 517,438 fewer units – less when compared to the five-year pre-pandemic average. source: The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders Limited (SMMT)
