Car manufacturing boom continues

There was an 11.5% rise in new car registrations in January in comparison to a year ago, a new report has revealed. This was the 11th successive monthly rise in car registrations in the UK, with competitive deals and lower running costs associated with new automobiles persuading people to opt for a new car. Another solid month of trading for January has led to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) revising forecasts for UK car manufacturing, with now more than 2 million cars expected to be produced in 2014. Interim Chief Executive for the SMMT, Mike Baunton, commented: “Building on a strong performance in 2012, SMMT has increased its market forecast – we anticipate a modest rise over the year, followed by further growth in 2014.”
