In February 2022, engine production in the UK decreased by 30.9% compared to the same period last year and amounted to 117,551 units.

Since the beginning of the year, output has fallen by 23.5% to 259,023 engines.

Production in domestic and foreign markets last month fell 38.5% to 48,642 and 24.3% (68,909), respectively.

Mike Howes, CEO of SMMT, said: “Engine production figures in February further highlight a challenging start to the year for manufacturers.

“Because of the new pressures that have arisen as a result of rising energy costs, as well as the continued impact of the global semiconductor shortage, Britain’s competitiveness is under threat.”
