Motor Vehicle Production (Press Release)
Data on the production of passenger cars and commercial vehicles are derived from the Motor Vehicle Production Inquiry (MVPI) which surveys the monthly output of 28 UK manufacturers classified to class 34.10 (motor vehicles) of the Standard Industrial Classification (1992). The MVPI is a voluntary inquiry that is conducted jointly by ONS and The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders Limited (SMMT). One of its major uses is as a component of the Index of Production.
The First Release contains seasonally and non-seasonally adjusted data for the production of passenger cars and commercial vehicles (total sub-divided into production for the home and export markets). It is published twenty-one working days after the close of the survey period.
