UK Automotive Sector: Surviving the Net Zero Transition

In this report, IMechE presents a plan to successfully enable the transition of the UK automotive industry to Net Zero.

The UK risks damaging its automotive sector unless significant effort is made by government and industry in collaboration.

The sector has shrunk in recent years in the face of strong headwinds. The economic, social, and industrial cost of allowing this decline to continue would be vast and very difficult to reverse.

It is not too late to save the industry and this report presents a plan to do so. Targeted strategic interventions will allow one of the UK’s globally iconic industries to survive and thrive in a future where road transport must transform to be smarter and completely decarbonised.
