“UK Motor industry hits 6 year high for production”
by Abby Brooke, Sales & Marketing Consultant, John Gibson Associates.
Car production in the UK is continuing to peak, with the latest figures by The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) revealing it hit a six-year high last year in rising by 3.1%.
A total of 1,509,762 million cars were produced in 2013, which was the highest volume since 2007 and worked out that a car was built in this country every 20 seconds.
The predictions for the future from industry experts are even bolder, with it estimated that 2 million cars will be built in the UK for 2017.
John Gibson Associates very own Regional Director, Richard Lebeter commented:
“It’s fantastic to see production hitting record levels since 2007. Back then I was a Dealer Principal myself and we enjoyed a buoyant period of new and used car sales. During my 25 years in motor industry management I can say with certainty that when we produce more vehicles, we sell more!”
