This is an exciting time for the UK’s diverse automotive industry. We’re experiencing rapid growth with many of the world’s leading manufacturers – including the BMW Group, Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan and Toyota – recognising the business case for investing here. The UK offers one of the lowest labour costs in western Europe, a competitive corporation tax (set to fall to just 17% by 2020) and regulations that support innovation and expansion. Meanwhile, the UK’s geographic location and strong supply and distribution infrastructure makes us a gateway to a customer base throughout Europe and beyond.
