With so much in the news about climate change and with fossil fuel resources running lower with each passing year the push of electric cars is becoming ever more apparent.
Never more so than with Jaguar Land Rover’s announcement this month that stated that they aim to create 10,000 new jobs in the UK, born from their new electric vehicle push.
Government investment of £450million in Jaguar Land Rover’s Midlands plant, means that the car giant aims to employ a further 10,000 individuals in order to fulfill the pledge of better batteries and electric vehicles on the market.
With stiff competition from Germany who are determined to be ahead in the electric technology, this investment from the Government puts Jaguar Land Rover in a great position to be a worthy opponent to Germany.
After much doom and gloom speculation, it would appear that many international companies still see the UK as a viable option to generate business. Only last month Japanese carmaker Nissan announced it would build two new models at their UK plant in Sunderland.
It’s great news for the motor industry and the UK, and although figures show that there was a drop of 4.2% last month in the number of new cars being registered when compared year-on-year the outlook still remains very positive.
