The British car manufacturing industry has reported a 13.1% increase in output during February 2023, with a total of 69,707 units produced. The increase in volume is driven by a surge in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and battery electric vehicle output, which increased by 72.2%, accounting for two in five cars produced in the month.
According to a new survey from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), nine out of ten firms want measures to deliver low-cost, low-carbon energy to help support the transition to zero-emission technologies. The survey highlights the need to ramp up the production of hybrid and electric vehicles.
Phi Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks, says, “The recent data released demonstrating the increase in vehicle output from the car manufacturing industry is welcomed news. However, as reported by the SMMT, there’s a need to further increase the output. Warehouses along the vehicle manufacturing supply chain can streamline their operations to help to meet the surge in demand.”
Midland Pallet Trucks offers a range of pallet trucks designed to meet the unique needs of different industries, aimed at improving warehouse organisation. Their product range comprises electric pallet trucks, hand pallet trucks, and weighing scale trucks, each built with optimal efficiency and safety in mind.
With the British car manufacturing industry continuing to transition to hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and battery electric vehicles, the need for warehouses to improve efficiency and bolster their processes is more important than ever. By working together and implementing more efficient processes, the industry can meet the growing demand for electric and hybrid vehicles and achieve its ambitious targets for a zero-emission future.
