The Council is made up of senior figures from across industry and government and meets three times per year.
In July 2013, the Automotive Council published the sector strategy: Driving Success – a strategy for growth and sustainability in the UK automotive sector. This long term strategy sets out a range of actions to addresses the cross-cutting objectives of improving access to finance, support for emerging and disruptive technologies, skills development, and improving the competitiveness of the UK supply chain. This is a living document that is updated and activities re-prioritised as appropriate.
The activities of the Automotive Council are channelled through three working groups, each divided into a range of work streams. The working groups are:
- Business Environment & Skills
- Supply Chain
