Nissan electric car plan to create 350 new jobs
Nissan, Japan's third biggest automotive group, is to plough £200 million into electric car production in a move which will create 350 new jobs and could safeguard thousands more.
The car giant announced today plans to invest in a new factory in Sunderland, within the site of its existing plant, which will create lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.
The move, which will involve an investment of £200 million over five years, will pave the way for the production of electric vehicles.
The Prime Minister said the investment - a rare boost for Britain's recession-hit motor industry - would create 350 new jobs and safeguard hundreds more in the supply chain.
Well here we go a eco friendly new business venture in UK geared at creating a new manufacturing base ans supplying the public with electric cars. What with the new ventures in solar energy, wave and wind power and the dreaded atom energy power stations.
UK goes into green mode its not perfect of course as electric cars have the battery problem and could add to the worst toxic waste problem of atomic waste. Nothing is really perfect how ever its a good step forward to cut the need of the dreaded oil fosil fuel problem. In my book its a start. Though power plants will still be belching fosil fuel products to produce the power for the batteries the air will start getting cleaner on the highways and in the cities.
