Due to the critical drop in car sales in the UK, the territory of the airbase in Oxfordshire was turned into a parking lot for unsold cars, according to the Daily Mail.

Recall that sales of new cars in the UK fell to the post-war level due to the coronavirus – in April they sold only 4,321 units of new vehicles. Moreover, according to the Daily Mail, all unsold cars began to be stored at the huge air base in Oxfordshire. Thousands of cars worth 35 million pounds.

It is noted that at the airbase not only budget cars are stored, but also luxury ones like Land Rover and Jaguar. At the same time, cars were placed here for only a few weeks – after which they will be taken to car dealerships.

Recall that earlier AutoTimesNews reported the export of new cars to the sea. So American automakers cope with an overabundance of cars due to low sales.
