UK Net Importer : 2020

The UK is a net importer of cars and has been since I have been doing this assessment going back to 1981!

To show how it works, Nissan made 246,000 cars and sold 72,000 in the UK. That makes Nissan a net exporter of 174,000. In total 921,000 cars left factories in the UK and 1.6 million were registered in the country. 

So the UK is a net importer of 710,000 units, domestic production is 43.5% less than imports. If that sounds poor, take comfort in knowing the locals aren't concerned at all.
