Spain way behind China car-builders

CHINA built 24 million cars last year, which surpassed Spain’s manufacturing output by an astonishing tenfold.

The east Asian giant, which has topped the list of world car-builders, was followed by Japan, which built 7.9m, Germany (5.7m), US (3.9m) and South Korea (3.9m).

Spain came seventh on the list of top producers, with 2.4 million, while the UK closed out the top-10 by hanging on to its 2015 position with 1.7 million cars.

It was an impressive figure for the UK, despite Brexit, and amid fears that manufacturers based in Britain might move operations to Europe.
