As is the case in Spain, the English automobile sector is very important. Proof of this is that many car brands rely on factories that are in the country to produce their models. However, positive vote in favour of the Brexit could bring complications to this since his departure from the European Union went with the expulsion of the free trade agreements and trade retaliation from third countries.
However and until this reaches (and either a reality or a speculation) The Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT) has presented its annual study. The experts of this organism evaluates the behavior of the Anglo-Saxon production of cars in the country . As they have excelled in United Kingdom are increasingly closer to overcome the historical record that managed to get in the now distant year 1972, but if they continue to evolve as usual they will make it in a very short time.
During the past year 2016 United Kingdom factories took a total of 1.722.698 new vehicles. This means 8.5 percent more than it produced in the past 2015 and many manufactured since 1999. In addition, this amount should follow growing of face to them next years since the 80 percent of this production is exported to more than 160 markets to it long and wide of the world.
They main production points of the country are those formed by: Jaguar and Land Rover have all their factories (main) and design studies in United Kingdom. General Motors meanwhile has Ellesmore Port in the Center where the Vauxhall Astra is manufactured. The third Center is Sunderland’s Nissan because there comes out for all their successful Qashqai. These who have Toyota, Mini, Rolls Royce and other brands could allow United Kingdom two million vehicles manufactured in the face to the year 2020 and thus beat the record referred to above.
However you have the automobile industry English fly over two dangers that could wreck his ambitions. The first is that if his departure from the European Union is carried out by the bad trade agreements would be null and its products would pay high taxes and tariffs to other countries. The second is that because of the Brexit investment of brands are falling and therefore the factories of the country could lose exclusivity on their models and see decreased productive capacity.
Time to time and patience. To see how is it this 2017.
