Car production still affected by MG Rover demise

Car production has dropped by 8.6% in February compared to last year, according to figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

Car production is down by 10.5% for the year so far.

“As we near the anniversary of the closure of production at MG Rover, car production figures for the UK continue to be affected by this loss”, said Christopher Macgowan, SMMT chief executive.

“Over three-quarters of the 8.6% drop in February can be attributed to Longbridge. However, significant growth at both Land Rover and Toyota, and solid output at other big plants, demonstrates that production in the UK remains healthy,” he added.
