Unable to find investors, Britishvolt files for insolvency

AutotechInsight Analysis Monthly

To survive in a highly competitive market, upcoming battery makers must nurture strong partnerships with electric vehicle manufacturers to secure large volume orders early on based on their technological innovations

Battery startup Britishvolt filed a notice to appoint an administrator in the insolvency courts in the UK on January 17, 2023, after failing to raise funds from new and existing investors to keep the business afloat.
