The production of cars in the UK in the first quarter of 2018 decreased by 6.3% in annual terms to 440 thousand 426 cars on concerns about future diesel cars and export prospects after Brexit, the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders reported. Due to bad weather, which broke the supply chain, in March the rate of decline accelerated to 13.3%. Quarterly decline was caused by a decline in production in the domestic market. The indicator fell by 14.1% compared to a 4% decrease in the production of export vehicles. Against the background of the lack of domestic demand for diesel cars, Nissan and Jaguar Land Rover continue to cut jobs.
