UK vehicle production drops
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders just issued UK vehicle production data for this April.
These showed another fall. Car production was down 55.3% and commercial vehicles down 65.2%. Over the first four months of the year, total vehicle production is down 57.2%.
"The launch of scrappage incentive schemes in the UK and Europe should help to shore-up volumes but recovery will take time," says the SMMT's boss, Paul Everitt.
