Thought the British car industry was dead? Then think again; the UK domestic car making business is as vibrant, diverse, productive and successful as it ever was and, this week, Autocar proves it.
In a special twelve-page snapshot, we take the temperature of an industry worth 1.7 million cars a year, and employing over 50,000 people at 27 factories nationwide. Over the course of nine days and 2000 miles, we visited every one of them - and you can find out what we found in this week's magazine.
'On the day we visited, one plant was presented with demands for major improvements in quality and efficiency,' the report explains, 'and the closure of another famous address has since been announced. But don't confuse this with the bad old days: far worse is happening elsewhere, and there's never been a better time to freeze frame the great British car industry.'
