Britain Leading The World

SMMT’s recent Low Volume and Specialist Vehicle Manufacturers report outlines how Britain is a world leader in producing low volume, high value vehicles, everything from 250mph hypercars to campervans, limousines to electric taxis, motorhomes, wheelchair accessible vehicles, hearses and an unrivalled range of high performance, sports and luxury models.

All told, this vibrant sector turned over some £4 billion last year, employing more than 15,000 people to produce over 28,000 cutting-edge products, even amid a global pandemic.

As in previous years, most of these vehicles were built for global export, with companies enjoying a more balanced overseas footprint than larger OEMs.
