  • The £150 million National Automotive Innovation Centre (NAIC) will come up on the campus of the University of Warwick.
  • Funded by Jaguar Land Rover, Tata Motors, the University of Warwick and the Government's Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).
  • 33,000m2 complex
  • space for 1,000 engineers, designers and academics to work together
  • Teaching facilities will support the education of tomorrow’s engineers
  • students from the WMG academies for young engineers to work on real world applications
The high-tech research facilities will include a design and simulation space creating innovative automotive solutions, an advanced propulsion research laboratory which will address the national requirement to position the UK as the leading innovator in advanced propulsion systems, and the world’s most adaptable and advanced fully immersive drive-in car simulator. There will be close working on collaborative research projects with the research councils and the department of business innovation and skills. Jaguar Land Rover and Tata Motors will also use the NAIC to take forward autonomous vehicles research through a £19m Autodrive UK project.

The NAIC will provide a national focus and critical mass of research capability combining expertise nationally, internationally from industry, universities, SMEs and the automotive supply chain helping to deliver breakthrough technologies in areas such as carbon reduction, smart and connected vehicles, and advanced propulsion systems including internal combustion engines, hybrid and electric systems.
