How many were made?

Post by Manalishi » Mon May 04, 2020 8:09 am

I can’t really find any figures for the production capacity of the 800-range.

How many were made from the very first mk1 to the last mk2, including Sterling, exports, LHD etc?

Are these figures available?

I did find a post here saying about 125.000 mk2 were made, but not sure if that includes LHD?

I'll have to go mountaineering in my dining room tomorrow Henrik to find the Rover 800 book and see if that gives any production figures. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

Mk1 production 193,529 of which 116,117 sold in the Uk, , some 77,300+ sold Rest of World, which includes the 34,872 that went Stateside. I personally think there is another 4000 to add to this figure, these were the cars built in Japan by Honda in a reciprocal production plan where Cowley built 2500 Legends but details are sketchy.
There were 123595 Mk2's built, just over 75,000 selling in the UK and circa 48,000 selling Rest of World.
Total build from July 10th 1986 to 17th September 1998 was 317,124.
