BRITISH car manufacturing achieved another month of strong growth in February with output up 13.1 per cent, according to figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.
Reflecting the growing popularity of UK-built cars both at home and abroad, February’s performance puts production for the year-to-date up 10.6 per cent over the same period last year.
Output for the domestic market rose 24.4 per cent in the month, accompanied by a robust 9.1 per cent increase in export production.
Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive, said: ‘The UK automotive industry’s impressive growth continued into February, with demand from both domestic and overseas customers showing no signs of slowing.
‘The outlook for the sector is bright, but much will depend on global political and economic conditions in the months and years to come.’
