Car production in UK declined 29.3% to 920,928 units, the worst performance since 1984, with the pandemic chiefly responsible for the decline. Manufacturing operations were severely disrupted throughout 2020, with lockdowns and social distancing measures restricting factory output, Brexit uncertainty continuing until Christmas Eve and depressed market demand in key export destinations. Production for overseas buyers fell 29.1% while output for the UK dropped 30.4%. Even amid the global pandemic, exports continued to drive UK car manufacturing, with more than 8 in 10 of all cars made shipped overseas. The EU remained the UK’s biggest export destination, taking a 53.5% share, despite volumes falling 30.8% to 400,460 units. Meanwhile, in December alone car production declined 2.3% yoy to 71,403 units, the least in four months, with some firms affected by border closures and thus component supply issues due to the lockdown. source: The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders Limited (SMMT)
