Backing the North

Today the government announced backing for a new electric-vehicle Gigafactory in the North, capturing the benefits of the booming electric vehicle market, and bringing thousands of highly-skilled, well-paid jobs to Northumberland.

  • The Conservative government is making the investment necessary to ensure UK’s retains its place as one of the best locations in the world for auto manufacturing.
  • That is why the government is backing a new electric vehicle Gigafactory in Northumberland, which will create 3,000 direct highly-skilled jobs and manufacture 300,000 green batteries a year – enough to supply a quarter of the electric vehicles made in the UK annually.
  • Support for this new Gigafactory will help to level up the North with thousands of highly-skilled, well-paid jobs.
