Positive CV sector despite muted January

19 February 2015 #SMMT News #UK Manufacturing
  • UK produced 5,443 commercial vehicles (CV) in January.
  • Home market remains strong and steady, while exports stay subdued.
  • Ramping up production of new models is expected to yield growth later in the year.

“The commercial vehicle sector saw manufacturing output decrease year-on-year in January, although there is still confidence in the sector,” said Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive. “The home market for commercial vehicles has been strong in recent months and we expect a continued resurgence to help drive growth. Production is expected to ramp up on recently introduced models which will increase output.”
