TUCANA, a 10-year, £37m project that develops lightweight vehicles and powertrain structures, aims to position the UK as a world-leader in low carbon technology.

The research-based programme develops world-leading carbon fibre composite solutions to boost the performance of electric vehicles. By addressing structural performance across design, material and volume manufacturing, TUCANA will promote the wider adoption of electric vehicles, replacing up to 4.5 million tonnes of CO2 from 2023-2032. The project is led by Jaguar Land Rover, bringing together world-leading academic and industry partners.
