3 Introduction to the UK automotive sector Rising to the economic challenge – production and registrationA place in the global market – foreign investment and exportsClimate change and emissionsGovernment and industry working together – a low-carbon futureResearch & Development in the UKUK Supply ChainElectric, Ultra-Low Carbon and Alternatively Fuelled VehiclesA European perspective
4 UK Automotive rising to the challenge April year to date manufacturing volumes for cars and engines strong, CVs weaker.Major strides in reducing environmental impact in products and manufacturing processes.New car sales totalled 1.94mn. units in 2011, down 4.4% on 2010, but ahead of the 1.92mn. forecast.In 2011 better than expected trend in commercial vehicle registration: truck registrations up 42,944 units (24.6%), vans to 3.5t registrations up 16.7% to 260,153. Bus & Coach down 12.8%.2011 UK production remained encouraging – strong export growthSignificant increase in UK investment by VMs in R&D and local sourcing of components.Car production up 5.8%, engine production up 4.9% on 2010 but commercial vehicle production down 2.3%.
5 A place in the global market Large majority of UK vehicle assembly capacity owned by non- British companies.Focus on quality, flexibility and emerging technologies and markets.New growth technologies – electric vehicles, low-carbon energy efficient engines, new powertrains, instrumentation and controls.Significant focus on increasing purchasing sourced from UK.Unique global talent and resource in, automotive academia, independent design engineering, motorsport and formula motor racing - closely linked to mainsteam automotive manufacturing.UK remains 4th largest vehicle manufacturer in Europe.High proportion of automotive production continues to be exported.Vehicle and engine production increasing in both 2010 and 2011Exports continue to increase – 83.7% car, 57.7% commercial vehicle and 70.2% engine production exported.
6 Climate Change and Emissions Post Durban 2011 – increased European focus on climate change and air quality inevitable.Strong UK government focus on e-mobility but government is technology neutral.Transition to ultra low carbon vehicles is high priority.SMMT’s publication of CO2 Report tracks further reductions in CO2 and emission – with further improvements anticipated.Several UK cities installing charging points and SMMT EV Group supporting emerging technical and standards agenda in Europe.Introduction of Euro 6 emission standard for heavy commercial vehicles significant challenge for industry.Emissions in 2011 fell by 4.2% to 138.1g/km average – down 23% since 2000.Diesel and AFVs take 50.6% and 1.3% of market respectively in EV registrations 1,098 units.
7 Government and Industry Working Together Automotive Council set up in December 2009.Effective collaboration to identify challenges and stimulate growth.Sub groups for Supply Chain and Technology focusPublication of: Commodities Roadmap and Technology RoadmapMeet the Buyer events develop local UK sourcing opportunities.Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) coordinating R&D funding spend to best advantage.Low Carbon Vehicle Innovation and Public procurement Programmes launchedEngineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) coordinating academic research and linkage with industry.SEMTA and Skills Academy - responding to increased demand for engineering skills through apprenticeships, graduate programmes and staff training courses.
8 Research & Development in the UK UK government introducing beneficial tax changes and incentives to support manufacturing R&D.Development of wide range of low carbon vehicle, associated technologies and infrastructure.R&D in UK automotive is over £1.5bn per annum increasing 9% year on year.World class universities linked to industry creating inward investment opportunities.Low CO2 engine technology has led to significant new VM investment.UK is aiming to be global centre of excellence for low carbon and high value technologies.EV investment, research, development and production in UK at an increasing level
9 UK supply chainAround 2,350 UK companies regard themselves as ‘automotive’ suppliers, employing around 82,000 people – SMMT Automotive Industry Finder databaseAbout 80% of all component types required for vehicle assembly operations can be procured from UK suppliers but two thirds in value of OEM requirement is imported.The UK automotive supply chain estimated to be £7.4bn per annum, typically generates further £4.5 - £5bn of added value annually.Automotive Council Supply Chain Group survey and report published – sourcing roadmap.
10 Electric, Ultra Low Carbon and Alternatively Fuelled Vehicles UK Government policy suite to encourage early market adoption.£300 million Plug In Car and Plug In Van grants.Recent move towards hydrogen with UKH2Mobility initiative.Third round of Green Bus Fund announced – 526 hybrid-electric and 16 all electric buses purchased under scheme.£8 million Green Truck Fund for low emission HGVs.Government initiative to encourage 8000 charging points by 2013 – installed as at October 2011
11 A European perspective Close involvement with ACEA, CLEPA and FIGIEFA to influence European Commission agenda.Development and harmonisation of technical standards and regulations continues apace with e-mobility, safety and security.Close liaison with UK Department of Transport to influence UNECE WP29.Whole Vehicle Type Approval, Harmonised Light Vehicle Testing, EU Noise Limits are challenging for industry.Europe still has significant economic growth, sovereign debt and overcapacity issues to resolve.

38 2011 - Buoyant year for van and truck market Truck registrations up 42,944 units (24.6%) for the full year.Vans to 3.5t registrations up 16.7% to 260,153 in 2011. For trucks >6t, registrations for 2011 were 37,410.The very recent trend for growth in two-axle rigids above 6t strengthened markedly. Growth rates ranged from 30 to 90% across the various weight segments for these trucks.Until very recently these sectors had lagged behind what was an artic and multi-axle rigid led recovery.Better than expected trend in registration volumes faces significant challenges just to hold steady over It may be that market specific factors could be more supportive than the meagre rate of economic growth envisaged for this year.
