Britain’s Business Secretary Greg Clark has awarded over £100m of Government funding to projects, including one by Jaguar Land Rover, that will help develop the next generation of driverless and low-carbon vehicles, as part of the Government’s Plan for Britain.
Jaguar Land Rover, which has its engine manufacturing base at i54 near Coven, Penso Consulting and Westfield Sportscars are leading three projects that will receive £19.2 m worth of grants from the latest round of funding from the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC), the joint industry-Government programme to put the UK at the forefront of low carbon vehicle technology.
The cutting edge projects cover a wide range of new innovations which will help the UK to become a global leader in low-emissions technology.
Projects include a collaboration between Jaguar Land Rover, technology companies and universities to develop new lightweight vehicle technology.
