Think R&D. Think UK.
Proximity to the UK automotive market reduces logistics costs, minimises risk and facilitates the handling of increasingly complex production processes. The UK provides an investor-friendly environment coupled with world-leading automotive benefits including a thriving motorsport industry and renowned universities.
By offering incentives such as the lowest rates of corporate taxation in the G7, flexible labour laws, funding for growth, R&D incentives (Tax Credits and Patent Box) and the creation of Enterprise Zones, the UK attracts more overseas development than any other country in Europe.

A world-leading location
