The international company Stelantis, which owns the British car manufacturer Vauxhall, has announced that it will invest 100 million pounds in the production of electric vans and cars in that factory in the northwest of England.
The company said Voxol’s Elsmere Port plant in Cheshire near Liverpool will produce electric vehicles for other Stelantis brands, including Peugeot, Citroen and Opel.
The future of the English factory was uncertain when Stelantis announced that a new version of the popular Astra car model would not be produced there.
Voxol, which has produced more than five million vehicles since its opening in the 1960s, will now focus on the production of electric vehicles.
The UK plans to ban the sale of new vehicles with petrol and diesel engines from 2030.
The future of the automotive industry in the UK is uncertain since the referendum on leaving the EU in 2016.
