Costs risk from ‘worrying’ lack of EV technicians
24 November 2021
Former Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer says there is “already a worrying lack of capable technicians” to service electric cars. This could lead to retailers competing for highly-skilled talent which “may result in higher costs for the repair of electric vehicles, at least over the short-to-medium term”.
He is calling on schools, colleges and universities to “recognise the role the auto industry can play in providing highly-skilled, well-paid and green jobs for future generations”.
