The network showed an air base at which thousands of cars were stored at 35 million poundsMay 10, 2020
The former Upper Heidford Royal Air Force base in Oxfordshire, UK, has become a large parking lot for cars that could not be sold.
The consequences of the strongest decline in sales due to coronavirus can now be seen from a bird’s eye view. The pictures were distributed on Sunday, May 10, by the Daily Mail agency.
The territory of the air base is currently occupied by thousands of new cars. Among them are both affordable and premium cars like Land Rover and Jaguar. The total price of this unsold fleet is more than £ 35 million.
The airfield will be used as a fleet for cars for several weeks, then the cars will be sent to car dealerships. According to analysts, interest in acquiring new cars in the British market decreased by 97%, to the level of 1946. In April, a total of 871 new cars were sold in the country.
