Ford in the United Kingdom

Brexit casts its shadow over the auto industry, and hence, the company decided to shut down its plant in Bridgend, as many fellow automakers have decided to cease operations at car production plants in the United Kingdom. That said, the Ford Motor Company continues to operate an engine plant in Dagenham. Ford was the best-selling brand in the UK in December 2019 and had a market share of around 10 percent in December 2019. However, figures for March 2020 suggest that the current market situation is deteriorating. Ford sold only 19,000 cars to UK customers in March 2020. In terms of worldwide sales, Toyota may become the leading automobile manufacturer by 2020. In March 2020, Toyota accounted for around six percent of car registrations in the UK. In the European Union and the United Kingdom, car sales were down 53.5 percent in March 2020, likely due to closed dealerships and consumer spending uncertainty amid the coronavirus pandemic.
