LONDON, England: As supply chain disruptions eased and output picked up in domestic and overseas markets, British car production rose 13.1 percent in February, in its first monthly increase in three months.

Britain's car output rose by 8,050 units to 69,707 units cars last month, with exports rising 11.5 percent and domestic output jumping 20.3 percent, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) said in a statement.

SMMT noted that about 81.2 percent of the newly assembled cars were exported, mainly to the European Union, and in smaller volumes to countries, including Japan, Australia and Turkey, offsetting declines to the U.S. and China.

Production of hybrids, plug-in hybrids and battery electric vehicles continued to rise, with combined volumes surging by 72.2 percent to 27,392 units in February, the data showed.
