John Leech, Head of Automotive at KPMG UK, commented:
“The Chancellor’s announcement of £270m for robots, driverless cars and biotech is a welcome boost for automotive companies and will benefit consumers. This investment will enable the UK to be an early adopter of shared-use driverless cars and Britain’s consumers will enjoy the largest cost savings in the world from this technology.
