There is even more good news for the British car industry, as 83.9 percent of vehicles produced are for export. More cars are being exported from the UK than ever thanks to investments in world-class facilities. The UK is also home to Europe's most highly-skilled and productive workforce. Ten new models began production in Britain last year, nine of which were for luxury brands, which has helped Britain become the second largest producer of premium vehicles behind Germany
. Eight out of ten cars produced in Britain is exported, destined for one of 160 worldwide markets. It wasn't just British brands that helped boost sales, other companies make cars in the UK as well.
