    The automotive sector is entering unprecedented times in terms of the technology in the vehicles produced and how they are manufactured. This presents major challenges and significant opportunities for the North East automotive sector. The North East is globally renown as a centre of excellence for automotive manufacturing, producing 30% of all UK passenger vehicles and is a significant contributor to the regional economy, generating over £11bn of sales. Despite near-term challenges around the transition to electrification, the sector is expected to grow to £14bn over the next three years.

    In recent years, the region has also established significant capabilities in batteries, power electronics and electric motors. The North East manufacturing must capitalise on these strengths to ensure the region is at the forefront of the UK Government’s strategy to ensure the technologies of tomorrow are designed, developed and manufactured in the UK.
