UK automotive sector: overview

The UK automotive industry is bucking the trend across Europe by achieving record growth, creating thousands of jobs and attracting major inward investment, making it a global competitor.

The UK has the most productive automotive labour market in the EU, catering to strong domestic and export demand.

Industry-government collaboration through the Automotive Council has been vital to this success. Together, they produced – and are delivering – the Automotive Sector Strategy (2013) to ensure the right conditions for further growth. It means genuine long-term opportunities, particularly for supply chain companies and developers of ultra-low emission vehicles.
