Industrial Strategy Automotive Sector DealForewordFor decades, the UK’sautomotive industry haspowered our economyforward. Today, automotivefirms from around the worldchoose to set up shop here,citing our history of excellence,skilled workforce and worldleading supply chains.As ever, partnership will be pivotal. In thenext 10 years, the sector will see morechange than in the previous hundred.From the engines that power our cars,to the way we control them and ourattitudes to owning them, technologyis changing what the industry lookslike and where money can be made.New conditions require new thinking and,as a country, we are extraordinarily wellplaced to provide this. Our rich historyof scientific discovery includes thelithium-ion battery, which was inventedin this country and already powersmillions of vehicles around the world.And in the future, the automotivesector will shape our response to theGrand Challenges articulated in ourIndustrial Strategy, such as CleanGrowth and the Future of Mobility —transformations which will foreverchange how people live, work and travel.2

As ever, partnership will be pivotal. Thisfirst Automotive Sector Deal builds onthe longstanding partnership betweenthe government and industry, brought tolife through the Automotive Council andwill be followed by further commitments.As a result of the Sector Deal, bothgovernment and industry will investabout a quarter of a billion poundsto develop and manufacture electricvehicles. This includes the FaradayBattery Challenge, which will drive thetechnologies to power electric vehiclesin the future, as well as 80 millionfor a new state-of-the-art automotivebattery development facility inCoventry. This investment marks yetanother step forward on our journeytowards mass producing electricbatteries and vehicles here in the UK.The deal also aims to create aworld-leading testing environmentfor Connected and AutonomousVehicles. Using our renowned testtracks, we will improve the safety ofthese vehicles by pushing them to thelimits of their speed and handling.And, finally, the government is investingin a new industry-led programmeto raise the competitiveness of UKsuppliers to match the best in Europe.For over a century, the UK haswritten the history of the automotiveindustry. As we open the sector’snext chapter, let’s work togetherto make sure the technologies oftomorrow are developed, tested andmanufactured right here in the UK.Rt Hon Greg Clark MPSecretary of State for Business,Energy and Industrial StrategyNigel SteinChief Executive GKN plc andAutomotive Council Chairman3

Executive SummaryThe Automotive Sector Deal, the first in a rolling series ofintended deals with the sector, builds on the partnershipbetween the government and industry that has been in placesince the Automotive Council was established in 2009, settingthe direction and long-term strategic priorities for the sector.This partnership has yielded results:vehicle and engine output hasincreased, productivity has improvedand the proportion of UK componentsin each vehicle produced in theUnited Kingdom is rising (44 percent in 2016, up from 36 per centin 20111). For the seventh successiveyear expenditure in research anddevelopment (R&D) by motor vehiclemanufacturers has increased, and in2016 it reached 3.4bn, growing by20 per cent on the previous year2.These achievements matter not justto the industry but to the country. It isthrough these successes that the sectoris able to provide over 390,000 highquality, well-paid jobs, both directly invehicle manufacturing and through thesupply chain3, increasing prosperityacross the country. The industry is aninternational success story, generatingover 40bn of export revenue in 20164,and helping the UK to maintain areputation for engineering innovationand manufacturing excellence.Production levels achieved a 17-yearhigh in 2016 with 1.7 million vehiclesrolling off production lines5. Today thesector faces a new set of challenges.Significant changes in how cars are6built, powered and driven means theindustry must continue to adapt tomaintain its position as a global leader.It must take decisions now to ensureit remains both attractive to investin and central to the UK economy.The UK automotive industry with itsdiverse range of products, spanningvolume, premium and niche vehicles,has benefited from the Europeanmarket, with highly integrated supplychains and a significant demandfor UK-built cars across the region.In total, half of all UK automotiveexports go to the European Union.As the UK leaves the EU, the industrywelcomes the government’s ambitionto achieve a new relationship thatis free from tariffs and withoutfriction to trade – factors that arefundamental to the competitivenessof the UK automotive sector.The proposals contained withinthis Sector Deal are designed tocomplement this ambition and arealigned to the foundations set out inthe Industrial Strategy – ideas, people,infrastructure, business environmentand places. They support its visionfor the UK to be the world’s mostinnovative economy; for good jobs

and greater earning power for all;for a major upgrade to the UK’sinfrastructure; to be the best placeto start and grow a business; and forprosperous communities across the R&D from 9.5bn to 12.5bn, as wellas a commitment to work with industryto boost spending on R&D to 2.4 percent of GDP by 2027. This will increaseto 3 per cent over the longer term.We have prioritised an initial setof proposals, which have beenagreed between the AutomotiveCouncil and the government. Itis intended that this deal is thefirst of several with the sector.This Sector Deal demonstrateshow the automotive sector canplay an important part in meetingthis commitment by investingin the development of the nextgeneration of vehicles.IdeasIn recognition of this, the AutomotiveCouncil asked Richard Parry-Jones,former Chief Technical Officer andHead of Global R&D Operations atFord Motor Company, to conduct asector-led review into acceleratingthe transition to the manufacture ofultra-low and zero emission vehicles.The ambitions set out in the IndustrialStrategy White Paper are underpinnedby a commitment to world-classinnovation. It set out a further increasein R&D investment of 2.3bn in2021/22, raising total public investment7

The evidence gathered from the reviewunderpinned the rationale for thelandmark Faraday Battery Challenge6.Through the Faraday BatteryChallenge, the government isinvesting 246m over four yearsinto a programme of competitionsfocused on the research, innovationand scaling up of battery technology.In the coming months the governmentwill publish a strategy for the transitionto zero emission road transport,ensuring the UK continues to be aworld leader in the development,manufacture and use of these vehicles.The UK is also pursuing a position in theglobal vanguard of the development,demonstration and deployment ofconnected and autonomous vehicle(CAV) technologies, capitalisingon our commitment to R&D and8our competitive advantage ofbeing able to test anywhere in theUK today. It is estimated that theCAV sector will be worth 28bnto the UK economy by 20357.Business EnvironmentThe Industrial Strategy White Papersets out the government’s ambition tomake the UK the best place to start andgrow a business. A key part of this isour globally competitive corporatetax rate of 19 per cent, our continuousfocus on regulatory reform andour ability to attract global talentand disruptive start-ups. Ourchallenge is to improve how wespread the best practice of ourmost productive businesses.Our key policies include launchingSector Deals – and automotive is anearly partner. We are also establishing

a new 2.5bn investment fundincubated in the British Business Bankto drive investment in innovativeand high potential businesses. A newUK-backed and industry-led brandfor CAV – Meridian – was set up toconvene UK industry around sharedpriorities, and showcase our approachinternationally. Meridian will cementthe UK’s status as the go-to destinationfor the development and testing ofCAV and new vehicle technologies.Manufacturing is crucial to theeconomy, providing 10 per cent ofthe UK’s Gross Value Added (GVA),generating around 50 per cent ofour exports and accounting for70 per cent of business-led R&D8.Advanced manufacturing supplychains are highly complex and globallyintegrated, with components oftencrossing borders several times.Although we have a strong position,there is a major opportunity todeepen the supply chain presence forthe sector in the UK. We thereforeintend to launch a new supply chaincompetitiveness and productivityimprovement programme targetingareas where key businesses need toimprove to match the best in Europe.The programme will provide bespoketraining and streamlined businessprocesses to help build the integratedsupply chain we need in the UK tomanufacture the future generation ofvehicles at volume. This will support theindustry’s ambition to increase the levelof UK content by value in domesticallybuilt vehicles to 50 per cent by 2022.InfrastructureAs we set out in the Industrial StrategyWhite Paper, having modern andaccessible infrastructure throughoutthe country is essential to ourfuture growth and prosperity.We have announced an increase inthe National Productivity InvestmentFund to 31bn, supporting investmentsin transport, housing and digitalinfrastructure. We are investing over 1bn in boosting digital infrastructure,including 176m for 5G and 200mfor local areas to encourage rollout of full-fibre networks.Our investments in infrastructureare among the government’s mostsignificant interventions in the economyand we are ensuring that they activelysupport our long-term productivity anddrive the growth of emerging industries.To accelerate the transition to electricvehicles we are creating a new 400mCharging Infrastructure InvestmentFund ( 200m from the governmentto be matched by private investors);and providing 200m Office for LowEmission Vehicles R&D funding overthe current spending review period; 100m new funding for the plug-in cargrant; 40m R&D funding (matched byindustry) for new charging technologiesincluding on-street and wireless projects;initiating a 20m vehicle-to-gridR&D competition, a 23m HydrogenTransport programme and makinga commitment that the governmentwill lead the way, making 25 per centof all cars in the central governmentfleet ultra-low emission by 2022.9

PlacesPeopleThe Industrial Strategy set out our goalof helping prosperous communities tothrive across the UK. We are creating anew Transforming Cities fund that willprovide 1.7bn for intra-city transport.This will fund projects that driveproductivity by improving connectionswithin city regions. We are alsocommitting to agree Local IndustrialStrategies that build on local strengthsand deliver on economic opportunities.The government set out its vision tocreate good jobs and greater earningpower for all in the Industrial Strategy.To do this, we need to ensure that weare equipping citizens for jobs shapedby next generation-technology.The 2017 CAV testbed competitionaimed to create the world’s mosteffective CAV testing ecosystem bycreating a number of distinct testcapabilities which would work togetheras part of an open testing environment.Collaborative projects supported underthis initiative form part of a uniquecluster running from our automotiveheartlands in the West Midlands,through our innovation centres nearOxford and Milton Keynes, to London.The portfolio of projects linked tothe Advanced Propulsion Centre(APC), a ten-year, 1bn initiative,funded 50:50 by government andindustry to support the developmentof low carbon technologies, includeparticipants spread across the UK,and is supported by a network ofCentres of Research Excellence.These centres, the ’APC spokes’,are linking industrial and academiccommunities from Newcastle toBrighton and from Nottingham to Bath.10The growth of the UK automotivesector and the transition to the nextgeneration of vehicles will requirepeople with new skills and a substantialupskilling of the existing workforce.This requires a coordinated nationaland local approach through establishedinstitutions such as the Institute forApprenticeships and supportingthe development of the new T levelqualifications. The government andindustry are committed to takingforward this agenda through thenext phase of Sector Deals.Under the direction of the AutomotiveCouncil, and with initial grant supportfrom the government, the industry hasestablished the Automotive IndustrialPartnership for Skills (AIP). The AIPhas developed a skills roadmap for thesector, which is guiding steps to tacklecritical skills shortages as the sectorgrows and evolves. A key element is toboost apprenticeships. The automotivesector has been at the forefront ofapprenticeship reforms, leading thedevelopment and piloting of the new‘trailblazer’ standards, and setting upthe Apprenticeship Matching Service.
