How electric vehicle batteries could save the UK auto industry

Tom Stacey, Anglia Ruskin University

The UK may have lost Eurovision this year, but it recently beat European rivals for an arguably more valuable prize. Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is expected to build a multi-billion-pound electric vehicle (EV) battery plant in the UK rather than Spain – welcome news for British car makers. After decades of decline, this could help turn Britain into a base for battery production, saving its ailing auto sector.

The news about JLR expected investment brings relief after recent comments from manufacturers including Stellantis (owner of Vauxhall, Citroën and Peugeot), about the future of the UK

Metal shortage could put the brakes on electrification

As more and more electric cars are travelling on the roads of Europe, this is leading to an increase in the use of the critical metals required for components such as electric motors and electronics. With the current raw material production levels there will not be enough of these metals in future – not even if recycling increases. This is revealed by the findings of a major survey led by Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, on behalf of the European Commission.

Electrification and digitalisation are leading to a steady increase in the need for critical metals* in the EU’s vehicle
