The automotive industry is a vital part of the UK economy accounting for more than £77.5 billion turnover and £18.9 billion value added.
With some 169,000 people employed directly in manufacturing and in excess of 814,000 across the wider automotive industry, it accounts for 12.0% of total UK export of goods and invests £4 billion each year in automotive R&D and is clearly among the UK’s key sectors.
Economic conditions have caused a marked drop in the value of used vehicles, whilst UK car production reached its highest level in 17 years in 2016, there were also records broken in the used car sector, with more than 8 million being sold in the same year, a new UK record.*
