Austin's design for the Austin Seven, launched in 1922 was the first British car to be affordable enough to make motoring accesible to the mas market. By the 1930s Austin's factory at Longbridge was producing over 1000 cars a week, and by 1934, customers could choose from a range of 41 different models.
