Leading the Charge: Can Britain Develop a Global Advantage in Ultra-Low-Emission Vehicles?

From Press Release:

With a growing global market and swiftly evolving technology, ultra-low-emission vehicles present an unmissable window of opportunity for the British automotive industry. This report presents a roadmap for how Britain can both win a greater share of the international market and develop domestic demand for ULEVs, and explains how doing so can secure jobs and growth, help achieve environmental targets, and improve the energy grid.

Tightened international standards for vehicle emissions have spurred the growth of the global market for ultra-low-emission vehicles (ULEVs) and the development of new technologies such as hybrid and pure electric vehicles.

In order to develop the UK’s comparative advantage in the expanding international ULEV market, the government and industry must take unprecedented concerted action. This should focus on three areas of industrial policy:

Ensuring that domestic firms in the automotive supply chain have access to the finance that they need.

Providing greater public investment for the application and commercialisation of innovation.

Adopting new strategies in higher education, immigration and apprenticeship policy to ensure that the supply of engineers keeps pace with demand from the automotive industry.
