UK car production fell 11.3% to 60,554 units in April 2022 from a year ago, amid ongoing chip shortages and supply chain issues, exacerbated by the Ukraine crisis. Soaring energy prices and slowing global markets also pressured the car industry, while supply chain disruptions in Ukraine, a major hub for automotive parts, has left many car makers scrambling to find alternative sources. "The UK car industry is exposed to a host of issues that are undermining output and competitiveness," SMMT CEO Mike Hawes said, calling for government relief akin to the kind given to energy-intensive industries such as steel to cope with surging electricity costs. Six in 10 cars exported in April were headed to the European Union, a 5% rise year-over-year. Production meant for the UK grew for the second month in a row, jumping 60% from a year earlier, when the pandemic had dented demand. source: The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders Limited (SMMT)
