Experts warn switch from petrol and diesel to EVs could see the loss of 22,000 UK jobs


But many of the engines in British-made vehicles are made in UK factories such as Bentley’s plant in Crewe.

Ford employs 1,830 people at its Dagenham plant making diesel engines used in its Puma, Focus, Kuga, Transit Courier, Transit Connect and Galaxy models.

The SMMT said the auto industry and its supply chain must “make a major transition to remain viable”.

The report stated that half a million jobs will be lost in Europe as motoring goes electric, with only 226,000 created in new roles like battery production.
