Driving UK Fuel Cell Vehicle Design and Manufacture

Working with world-class research and industry partners, the project – lead by Jaguar Land Rover – will deliver a benchmark, zero-emissions premium Fuel Cell SUV concept. Successful execution of the project will result in significant opportunities for UK production sourcing to sustain and drive new jobs growth in the UK during the critical transition period from conventional internal combustion engines to electrified powertrains.   The project will also drive significant growth in FCEV design and manufacturing capability within the partnership and will provide the consortium partners with a competitive edge to create UK intellectual property; a strong UK supply chain; and downstream exploitation opportunities in adjacent fields.
