McLaren Automotive will add 250 jobs and a second shift as demand grows for its supercars.
The U.K. company expects to sell 3,000 cars this year, up from 1,653 last year, helped by strong orders for its entry-level Sport Series introduced last April from £126,000.
Renault and Nissan will offer more than 10 models with autonomous drive in the next four years, adding the technologies to mass-market vehicles as well as luxury cars, said CEO Carlos Ghosn.
The alliance partners will offer the technology in cars in the U.S., Europe, China and Japan, but the costs are unknown at this stage.
Kia Motors has added its weight to the UK government and auto industry-backed campaign for ultra low emission vehicles – Go Ultra Low.
The £30,000 Kia Soul EV has been added to the models under the scheme.
