Turkey’s au­to­mo­tive pro­duc­tion surged to a record high in the first two months of the year, data from the Au­to­mo­tive In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion (OSD) showed, pro­pelled by strong car ex­ports. The num­ber of ve­hi­cles pro­duced dur­ing the two month rose to 266,490, up 22 per­cent from the same pe­riod last year, as fac­to­ries ramped up pro­duc­tion of ex­port­fo­cused car mod­els. Car out­put alone jumped by 46 per­cent, OSD said. To­tal au­to­mo­tive ex­ports in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary rose to 219,434, up more than 20 per­cent, while car ex­ports leapt 60 per­cent, the as­so­ci­a­tion said in a re­lease on Sun­day. Out­put last month climbed 15 per­cent to 138,369, it added.
