Exciting decade ahead as UK auto sector faces up to climate crisis

The UK’s automotive industry is an important part of our economy today. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Trader’s (SMMT) industry facts show that automotive in the UK makes up 10% of UK exports and almost 800,000 jobs. There has been a century of relative stability in the industry, with one predominant powertrain technology. Historically, vehicle manufacturers have not had to worry about where their fuel comes from or how to get fuel to the vehicle. The need to move to net-zero has changed this and brings challenge as well as opportunity to the industry.

In addition to contributing significantly to the UK’s economy, there is a strong research, development and innovation capability in UK automotive. This capability allows us to develop solutions to the decarbonisation challenge. The APC has spent the past 10 years funding projects that remove CO2 from the tailpipe. These projects have been able to boast some great successes, for example, transitioning Ford Halewood from a transmission plant to electric drive unit production facility, and developing battery technology now manufactured in the Northeast and being built into UK made Nissan Leafs.
