Toyota will spend $3.5bn to build car batteries in the United States, while Europe's Stellantis has done a deal with LG to produce battery cells for North America. Meanwhile, Ford is investing $300m to convert a plant in the UK to make electric car components, as the firm's Europe president, Stuart Rowley, explains. And we get wider context on the market for electric vehicles from Professor Jillian Anable, who is an expert in transport and energy at the University of Leeds in the UK.
