Autocar Supplement at LCV2015 – Low Carbon Vehicles
In September 2015, the UK’s innovation agencies joined together with Millbrook to develop a unique magazine published by Autocar magazine on the first day of the LCV2015 event.
‘Low Carbon Vehicles – The UK’s innovation success story’ is a collection of short articles reporting how Britain and Northern Ireland have become world leaders in low carbon vehicle research, devlopment and production.
The 36-page publication was authored by Autocar’s ward winning team of Steve Cropley, Hilton Holloway, Andrew Frankel, Matt Burt and Mark Tisshaw who were given unprecedented access to the people and programmes which have helped position the UK as a global centre of excellence for low carbon propulsion development and production.
The Advanced Propulsion Centre, Automotive Investment Organisation, GoUltraLow, Innovate UK, Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership, Millbrook, Office for Low Emission Vehicles and Transport Systems Catapult work together through the Automotive Council to support UK companies as they turn ideas into products designed and manufactured in the UK.
From lightweight materials in Hampshire to electric buses in Northern Ireland, heat batteries in Scotland to engine production in Sussex the UK is far more diverse as a propulsion nation than most people would imagine. The significant advances in low carbon technology by vehicle manufacturers such as Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan and Ford which are highlighted in the report are supported by innovation from universities, SMEs and suppliers across the UK.
