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.
