The Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT) reports that UK engine manufacturing output declined by 29.3% in January with 168,291 units built.

According to the association, production for domestic and overseas markets also fell 27.2% and 30.8% respectively.

‘It has been an extremely challenging start to the year for UK engine manufacturers who have seen their output severely dented by the ongoing pandemic, a subdued market, and border friction following agreement of the UK/EU trade deal,’ said Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive.
