UK vehicle output up 12% in first half of 2012

  • Car manufacturing rose 14.1% in the first half of the year, and was stable in June, dipping just 0.7%.
  • Commercial vehicle output fell 8.7% during the first half of 2012 and 19.7% in the month.
  • UK engine production was up 0.5% over the first six months, but fell June.

“Despite dipping 0.7% in June, car production performed strongly during the first half of 2012, with output up 14.1%,” said Paul Everitt, SMMT Chief Executive. “The £5.8 billion investment committed to UK in the last two years provides long-term growth opportunities, but weakness in European demand may make the next few months a little bumpy.”
