SMMT figures for January reveal that exports now account for more than 80% of UK car production A rise in new car exports failed to stop UK car production dropping 2.1% year-on-year in January, making it the fifth successive month of decline for the industry.  Latest figures from the SMMT reveal that 118,314 new cars were built in the UK last month, compared to 120,890 in the same period last year.  Despite the drop in overall output, the number of cars built for export increased by 4.1% to 97,870, accounting for 82.7% of the UK’s total output.

This was the driving factor behind last month being the worst January for UK car production in nine years.  SMMT Chief Executi
