Vauxhall celebrate 4 millionth Astra at Ellesmere Port 0


Vauxhall are celebrating after the 4 millionth Astra rolled off the production line at the firm’s plant in Ellesmere Port.

To honour the landmark, staff at the factory choreographed an enormous mosaic in the plant’s car park formed entirely of red and white Astras, spelling out the impressive statistic.

The image took over 12 hours to assemble and comprised 57 red and 179 white Astras. A video was also released to commemorate the occasion.

The Vauxhall Astra has seen seven generations, all produced at the Ellesmere Port plant; almost 2,000 staff are employed at the facility.

The company’s Director of Communications, Denis Chick, said of the milestone: “The Vauxhall Astra has been one of Britain’s best-selling and loved cars for almost four decades, and we’re proud to manufacture it here in the UK at Ellesmere Port in Cheshire. We felt the production of our 4 millionth Astra was worth celebrating and, as always, the team at Ellesmere Port has stepped up to the challenge by creating this stunning image.”
