Car production on the rise 0

SMMT have announced that car production has risen by 11% this August, when comparing production levels from exactly a year ago.

The production of engines has also seen a sharp increase too with it increasing by 4.8% over the first eight months of 2011. Compared to last August, engine production increased by 14.4%, making it the best performing sectors in relation to car production. Our recent news about Jaguar Land Rover shows that this particular sector is about to expand even further. A new engine manufacturing plant in Wolverhampton is set to be built, creating low emission engines with 750 jobs created.

We also reported of a rise in car sales earlier this month, with them increasing for the first time since June 2010. Could this be the start of great times ahead for the UK automotive industry?

This welcoming piece of news is expected to continue through to next year, according to SMMT.  It shows some great character and tremendous strength in depth within the UK automotive industry.

A brand new Jensen Interceptor Sports Car from the 1960’s will be built, coming as a further delight to our automotive industry.

After reading our article yesterday, many may feel that this encouraging news about the rise in car production is nothing to get too excited about just yet. SMMT had anticipated yesterday at the Frankfurt Motor Show that the outlook for the automotive industry over the next 5 years looks very bleak indeed. As we mentioned yesterday, there are two sides to this particular story. The reasoning behind SMMT’s negative outlook is due to them believing that consumer confidence has fallen. News today shows car manufactures think the opposite and have great confidence car sales in the future.

Is there really a need for negative talk outlooks within the automotive industry?

However other automotive industry experts say that although the UK is producing more cars, many of them are exported to foreign countries. Many countries abroad have huge demand for British made cars, leaving a lot of profit made from exported cars.

However recent news seems to dampen reasoning for such unwelcoming predications of the way the UK automotive industry is going.

First car sales were on the up, then car production improved, what next?
