巩固汽车制造业处于二战以来的最低点

2020-5-29 12:36

 

英国4月份的汽车产量降至二战以来的最低点,与去年同期相比下降了99.7%。


根据汽车制造商和贸易商协会(SMMT)的数据,当月英国仅为出口制造了152辆汽车,为客户制造了45辆。


在政府实施封锁以限制新冠病毒传播后,全国数千家企业被迫关闭,汽车制造商也在其中。


许多植物被用来制造个人防护设备,这些设备是医疗工作者治疗那些受疾病影响的人所需要的。


SMMT表示,汽车制造商共生产了711,495件个人防护用品,包括面罩和医疗服。


今年迄今汽车产量下降了27.6%,减少了121,811辆。


该行业16.8万名员工正开始重返工作岗位,预计到5月底,美国约一半的汽车和发动机工厂将投入运营。


然而,SMMT表示,预计今年的产量损失将使该行业损失高达125亿英镑。


SMMT首席执行官迈克•霍斯(Mike Hawes)表示:“随着英国汽车工厂在4月份停产,这些数据并不令人意外,但它们确实突显出该行业面临的巨大挑战。上月,该行业的收入实际上已大幅削减至零。”


他说:“制造业正开始从长期关闭进入一个非常不确定的世界,增加生产将是一个渐进的过程,所以我们需要政府与我们合作,加速这个从根本上强劲的行业的复苏,刺激投资和保护就业。


“支持所有企业度过这场短期动荡,将确保英国的许多全球知名品牌能够继续生产世界各地消费者仍然渴望的产品,进而帮助英国实现长期繁荣。”

 

The number of cars made in Britain fell to its lowest point since the Second World War during April, down 99.7% compared to the same month last year.

Just 152 cars were built for export and 45 for customers in the UK during the month, according to figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

Car makers were among thousands of businesses across the country forced to close after the government imposed a lockdown to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

 

Many plants were used instead to make personal protective equipment needed by healthcare workers treating those affected by the illness.

 

The SMMT said car manufacturers had made 711,495 pieces of PPE, including face shields and medical gowns.

Car production in the year to date is down 27.6% with 121,811 fewer cars built.

The sector's 168,000 employees are starting to return to work, with around half of the country's car and engine plants expected to be operating by the end of May.

 

However, the SMMT said it expected lost production this year would cost the sector up to £12.5bn.

 

Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive, said, "With the UK's car plants mothballed in April, these figures aren't surprising but they do highlight the tremendous challenge the industry faces, with revenues effectively slashed to zero last month.

 

"Manufacturers are starting to emerge from prolonged shutdown into a very uncertain world and ramping up production will be a gradual process, so we need government to work with us to accelerate this fundamentally strong sector's recovery, stimulate investment and safeguard jobs.

 

"Support to get all businesses through this short-term turmoil will ensure the UK's many globally-renowned brands can continue to make the products that remain so desirable to consumers the world over and, in turn, help deliver long-term prosperity for Britain."
