The government will back almost 40 new projects to develop driverless and low-carbon vehicles with more than £100m in funding.

Business secretary Greg Clark will today sign off the funding with BMW, Ford and Jaguar Land Rover among beneficiaries.

In all, 38 projects will split the funding, with 14 low emissions schemes taking just over two-thirds of the cash.

Supported plans include new battery technology for high performance cars, efforts to support convoy travel between Stockport train station to Manchester Airport, and projects which could make any car operate autonomously.
