United Kingdom Automotive industry is a key sector in the country despite only ten years ago many have predicted the end of the over 100 years history for the compound.

The origins of the UK automotive industry date back to the final years of the 19th century. By the 1950s the UK was the second-largest manufacturer of cars in the world (after the United States) and the largest exporter. However, in subsequent decades the industry experienced considerably lower growth than competitor nations

Indeed, when the Rover brand entered in bankrupt with the logo purchased by Chinese investors, all the local brands entered in foreign hands. However, a methodical and strategic plan pursued by the country has relaunched the sector up to the record of vehicles produced hit in the 2015, with 80% exported.

The domestic vehicles sales had been the most dynamic in Europe in the last three years with the 2015 hitting for the first time ever the barrier of 3 million vehicles sold (2.63 million cars and 0.37 million lcvs).

Brexit is now breaking the momentum, hitting the market with sales expected to fall down over 10 percent in the next months.
