While Australian car production is winding up, over in the UK it’s a very different situation.
New manufacturing data out of the UK shows the nations car production plants are churning out cars at a rate 26% above the same month last year.
Since 2010 UK car production has increased by more than a third with more than 1.6 million cars expected to be produced in Britain this year.
UK car production in 2016 so far is now 13.6% ahead of the same period last year.
About three-quarters of all cars built in the UK are exported, including to Australia.
