Car production in Germany increased by more than 20% in the first 11 months of this year compared to the same period in 2022, national automotive industry organisation VDA has said, writes Leatherbiz.

It put production figures for January-November 2023 at almost 3.9 million vehicles. Of these, 2.9 million vehicles have gone for export, up by 19% year on year, but VDA pointed out that this was still well down on the figure for 2019.

By November that year, German car manufacturers had exported more than 3.25 million vehicles to customers overseas.
