Look inside the Envision factory making batteries for the Nissan Leaf as new plant announced for Wearside
As a new battery plant will be built beside Nissan’s Sunderland facility, we take a look inside an existing factory nearby.
It was confirmed on Thursday, July 1 that the company will bring hundreds of new jobs through the building of a new electric car, while a huge battery plant will be created in partnership with Japan-based Envision AESC.
Envision already operates a factory near the Sunderland plant, making batteries for the Nissan Leaf.
