UK car manufacturing output fell 44.6 percent from a year earlier to 51,039 units August 2020, following a 20.8 percent drop in the previous month, as efforts to ramp up production stalled amid the coronavirus crisis, with weak demand in key overseas markets compounded by a significant fall in output for UK buyers. The performance also reflected an unusually strong August in 2019, when some plants worked through the customary summer maintenance shutdown period, instead pausing in April to mitigate the then possible ‘no deal’ Brexit on March 31st. So far this year UK car production tumbled 40.2 percent to 518 thousand units.
