Home / News / A hugely successful six months in the automotive sector

Recent figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) for June show that the first half of 2016 was the best six month period in terms of production for sixteen years. So far in the year 897,157 cars have been produced in the UK. This included 158,641 in June alone; a figure 10.4% higher than the same month in 2015.

The performance of the automotive sector at the moment comes after billions of pounds were invested in the previous years. A huge number of these investments are coming to fruition, driving up the quality of the vehicles and making the UK a more attractive place for manufacturing. Several more of them are set to have an impact in the comings years, making the outlook for future of the industry very positive.

British-made vehicles have a fantastic reputation all around the world. In fact an incredible 77.8% of the products that roll off the production lines are shipped overseas to be sold. They find their way to over 100 different destinations all around the world.
