Figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show that UK car manufacturing fell just under 14% in June. A total of 136,901 cars were produced, marking the third consecutive month of decline after production fell in May and plummeted in April.

Overall year-to-date production was down 2.9% on 2016, with a total of 866,656 units built so far this year.

Overseas demand remains high, with 78.4% of the cars produced last month destined for export – the highest for five years. However, this still marks a 13.1% decrease on last year.

Production for the domestic market was also down, 15.9% to 29,631 units.

   

The SMMT remains fearful of the effects of Brexit, and notes the need for a trade deal which secures the future of the “world-class engineering, productivity, strong government collaboration and massive investment that have helped UK Automotive become a global success story in the past few years.”
