Car production in the United Kingdom fell 14% year-on-year to 105,008 units in February of 2021, representing an 18th consecutive month of decline and the weakest February performance in more than a decade as the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, in particular shuttered UK showrooms, new customs processes and global supply chain constraints continued to influence output. Production for the domestic market fell 34.9%, compared with a less severe 8.1% drop in exports. Overseas orders still accounted for by far the majority (83.2%) of all cars made in the month, with most of these (53.9%) heading into the EU, demonstrating once again the importance of harmonious trading relationships with the sector’s largest and closest market. February shipments to the US and Asia combined amounted to 30.9% of all UK car exports. Figures highlight critical importance of reopening UK car showrooms on April 12th, despite new lockdown measures coming into force in many parts of Europe. source: The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders Limited (SMMT)
