Ldv

Recommended Posts

LDV are (were) outmoded junk anyway, typical of how British Industry has failed to invest and stay ahead of the game.

We had some where I currently work and also at a previous employer, now replaced by Nissan and VWs respectivly. Both are markedly better than ther LDV competition that appear to be yet another rehash of a 20 (30) year old design.

The people who have to drive them all day aren't sorry to see the back of them.

It a shame but we seem to have lost the way with large scale, UK owned vehicle manufacture.

Most of the UK owned motor industry was housed in ancient dilapidated factories, often old aircraft hangers (Vauxhall at Ellesmere Port, Ford at Eastleigh). No comparison with the purpose built factories of Nissan at Washington and Toyota at Burneston (both also on old airstrips but newbuild) - Honda at Swindon.

Toyota is impressive as they had the foresight to arrange the site such that a symetrical plant could be built alongside the existing one (to double capacity) around the same boiler house etc - an impressive piece of foresight - why can't our managers etc be like that?

Presumably this is to make left-hand drive models for export?
