Slowdown takes place on UK car assembly lines

25 Jan 2010 15:34 | Transport

Car production in the UK in 2009 dropped almost a third on the previous year. Production was down 30.9% as demand collapsed in spite of the government’s scrappage scheme Commercial vehicle production also took a beating, with a 55.3% drop registered over 2008 figures. During last year, some car companies were forced to close for a while because of the dearth of buyers. Honda stopped production at its plant in Swindon, Wiltshire, for four months from February.
