PwC comment: January UK car output makes solid start to 2014

Published at 10:52 AM on 20 February 2014

UK car manufacturing has made a solid start to 2014, matching the strength of January 2013, industry figures have shown.


Phil Harrold, automotive partner, PwC, commented:


“The figures show that UK production for export remains strong whilst production for the domestic market has slowed a little, possibly as PPI claims monies begin to tail off. With the European market showing some recovery (up 5% according to recent figures) and new model launches scheduled later in the year, the overall industry should continue to power ahead.”
