Luxury car giant Aston Martin has pledged to manufacture all of its electric cars in the UK from 2025.As first reported in the Financial Times, owner Lawrence Stroll said all of its battery sports cars will be made at its plant in Gaydon, Warwickshire.
Its electric SUV models will be made at St Athan in Glamorgan, he confirmed.
The company is due to start making hybrid versions of its cars over the next four years, followed by battery-only models.
A growing number of car makers have said they are moving away from petrol and diesel engines, including Jaguar Land Rover, which announced last month its Jaguar brand will be all-electric by 2025.
It comes as the UK government plans to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030.It announced 500 redundancies last year as the impact of coronavirus hit car makers.
