Made in England!

To celebrate St Georges Day (23 April) we’ve put together a list of car manufacturers still producing cars in England! 

MINI

The Mini cooper is one of the most iconic cars ever made in Britain. Now owned by the BMW group, Mini have three plants across the UK that play a part in MINI production – The body panels are made in Swindon, petrol engines are produced in Plant Hams Hall, Plan Oxford is the heart of Mini, where all the parts are put together and the finished car rolls off the production line.
