UK battery ‘gigafactory’ is planning a huge expansion as electric car demand soars across the globe.

The new site will be a first for the country.

The owner’s of the UK’s only large-scale battery production factory has revealed plans for a big expansion that will put the plant which is based in Sunderland among the biggest electric vehicle facilities in Europe.

Envision said annual capacity at the plant would eventually rise to 38 gigawatt hours (GWh), an increase from a previous plan of 11GWh that was announced in July as part of a supply deal for Nissan’s Sunderland plant.

Battery companies are investing billions of pounds around the world in new facilities as they race to match the accelerating demand for electric vehicles.
