Part of Coventry’s response is reimagining our city's transport system with decarbonisation at its heart and providing people with better access and mobility in the city. Delivering a variety of innovative forms of clean transport many of which are the first of their kind in the UK and worldwide. Our pioneering research at the UK battery industrialization centre seeks to develop battery technologies for electrification of vehicles, industrial appliances and so much more, helping to build an entirely new UK supply chain and growing the economy. The possibilities are endless with our new plans to develop a Gigafactory providing the source of power for the vehicles of the future, revolutionizing car production and securing our place as a world-leading car manufacturer.
