Low Carbon Vehicles
Building on our automotive heritage
We are already the industry’s choice of location – some of the companies based in Coventry and Warwickshire are Zytex, MIRA, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), London Taxi (HQ), Aston Martin (HQ), GKN and Liberty Electric Vehicles.
We have extensive R&D capability and capacity which makes Coventry and Warwickshire the ideal test-bed for low carbon transport technologies. For example CABLED, the largest trial of electric vehicles in the UK is taking place here.
Creating the future of transport needs to harness the brainpower of innovative, creative and talented people, something that this area has in abundance. Something that both University of Warwick and Coventry University excel in.
We are well connected to the rest of the UK and beyond. Being a cost-effective location means that you’ll find high-quality people and world-class premises for a fraction of the cost of other UK cities. Local incentives and eased planning can be found in the area and a wide choice of available sites and premises from serviced accommodation; science and technology parks; city centre offices; industrial estates and major development sites.
And we have the support networks – C&W LEP, Invest in Coventry & Warwickshire (a single gateway for the area for businesses looking to locate or expand), Coventry University, University of Warwick and Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce.
