UK car production rose last month, fuelled by growing global demand for British-made models, industry figures have shown.
The number of cars made in October totalled 112,798, a 6% rise on the same month last year, said the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
SMMT said it signalled “steady improvement in global vehicle markets”.
It added that the number of cars built between January and October totalled 1,050,689, a 31% increase on the same period last year.
SMMT chief executive Paul Everitt said: “The industry’s focus on low-carbon technology and its global reach can help generate the private sector growth the country needs.”
