Nissan to unveil new battery ‘gigafactory’ that will boost electric car production

Nissan is to announce details of a new battery 'gigafactory' that will enable its Sunderland car plant to massively increase production of electric vehicles.

The Japanese manufacturer is expected to claim the battery plant, built in partnership with Chinese manufacturer Envision, will create 2,000 jobs.

The government is thought to have provided some financial support to encourage Nissan's investment and ministers are expected to hail it as an endorsement of the UK's post-Brexit industrial ambitions.
