Some reprieve for the UK's embattled car sector on Friday.

Jaguar Landrover is making a multi-million pound investment to build electric vehicles in Britain.

The country's biggest car company says it will make a range of electrified vehicles at its Castle Bromwich plant in central England.

It's a boost for the UK auto sector, which has seen Honda and Ford close plants this year.

And for Jaguar Landrover, which announced around 4,500 job cuts in January and posted a $4.5 billion dollar loss in 2018/19.

But the carmaker again warned of the impact of a no-deal Brexit.

The two men contesting to be the country's next prime minister - Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt - have both said they're willing to leave without a deal if necessary.

JLR says that would hurt the company's ability to trade with the EU, as it only has one factory inside the bloc.

Now, in moving away from diesel and riding the electric vehicle wave, Jaguar Landrover is determined to show it's ready for the new era in auto technology.
