LONDON — Britain’s car production dropped 41.4 percent year-on-year in October this year, marking the fourth straight month of decline and the weakest October since 1956, the British Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) said Friday.

Data showed that the country’s car manufacturing output was 64,729 units in October, as firms “grappled with the global shortage of semiconductors which led to production stoppages,” said the SMMT.

Production for domestic and overseas markets fell by double digits in the month, down 37.9 percent and 42.1 percent respectively when compared with the same month one year earlier, figures revealed.
