Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has said it will build “one of the UK’s largest battery assembly centres of its kind” in the English Midlands.

The announcement— made as JLR confirmed it was cutting its global workforce by around 4,500 people— said the battery centre would use “new production techniques and technologies to manufacture battery packs for future Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles”.

Batteries from the new centre, in North Warwickshire, will power next-generation electric drive units (EDUs) to be produced at the company’s Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton, JLR said.
