UK automotive engine output rises 3.5% in November 2015, with 209,133 units produced, according to the UK Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

Production for exports saw 13.3% uplift in the month, while overall year-to-date volumes remained stable, with output down 0.9%.

‘Demand from overseas was again the main driving force behind UK engine production in November, with a 13.3% rise in production for export outweighing a drop in domestic output,’ said Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive, said. ‘Engine manufacturing for the year so far remains steady, with a minimal fall compared with the same period in 2014.’
