Honda cars are parked in rows at docks in Southampton, southern England
Honda cars are parked in rows at docks, in Southampton, southern England January 22, 2009. British car output fell at its sharpest pace in almost 20 years in December, with production barely half that of 12 months earlier as the economic slowdown sapped consumer demand, an industry body said on Thursday. Britain's car industry is dominated by foreign manufacturers such as Japan's Nissan and Honda, which have cut production and jobs sharply after falling demand, both in Britain and for the three quarters of cars that are exported.
