CV production grows

CV production rose in November by 6%, according to data from the Office for National Statistics.

Rolling year total to November up 26,218 units to 211,463

CV production totals

Christopher Macgowan, SMMT chief executive said: 'The recovery in CV demand throughout Europe has had a positive effect on UK production facilities. They have clearly been up to the challenge, delivering state-of-the-art vehicles throughout the EU. CVs produced for home markets remain broadly stable compared to 2003, reflecting the use of the UK as a positive outlet for new home produced vans and trucks. We still expect to meet the 2004 forecast for 210,000 units manufactured in the UK.'
