No British manufacturer able to build UK government’s ministerial cars as output halves in 6 years


Recommended Posts

The government's next fleet of armoured ministerial cars will be made in Germany because supply chain issues hampered by Brexit mean no British manufacturer is able to meet its requirements, The Independent has learned.

The Metropolitan Police announced over the summer that it was ditching armoured Jaguar XJs for Baden-Württemberg-assembled Audi A8s – prompting criticism.

But it has now been revealed that the decision was made because there no British car maker is "able to meet the requirements of the tender", forcing the Met's hand.

"UK car manufacturing output is less than half the level it was six years ago – a truly harrowing situation for a hard-working industry which deserves better."
