Rover insists the cut in output from 500,000 in 1998 to 450,000 in 1999 is due to a change in production programmes rather than a fall in market share. A spokesman said: 'The reasons are the end of production of the 100 and the build up in production of the new 75 which means we won't have a full year of production. We have also finished production of some niche models such as the Rover Cabriolet and Coupe. The net outcome will be a production fall.'
