Tata Group to set up first electric vehicle gugafactory outside India

Britain plans to ban the sale of new high-polluting diesel and petrol cars from 2030, forcing its car manufacturing sector to switch production to electric vehicles. The factory — Tata Group’s first gigafactory outside India — will be built in Somerset, southwest England, after the site reportedly beat competition from Spain. “Tata Group will be setting up one of Europe’s largest battery cell manufacturing facilities in the UK. Our multi-billion-pound investment will bring state-of-the-art technology to the country,” said Tata chairman N. Chandrasekaran. The government said the factory will be a “huge boost to the UK’s automotive sector”, providing almost half of the battery production that the UK will need by 2030. The investment would “secure UK-produced batteries for another Tata Sons investment, Jaguar Land Rover, as well as other manufacturers in the UK and Europe, the government said. Production is due to begin at the factory in 2026, creating up to 4,000 jobs and thousands more in the wider supply chain. The UK’s goal of phasing out new diesel and petrol cars is part of its long-standing goal to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 in order to help tackle climate change.
