Gupta says Aussie cars still an option

February 09, 2018

Sanjeev Gupta says the fact that the car industry in Australia has died is an opportunity.

Manufacturing cars in Australia is still possible, a leading industrialist says.

Sanjeev Gupta, whose company GFC Alliance recently bought the Whyalla steelworks, says small-scale production of electric cars can be done thanks to improvements in manufacturing costs and the use of generic components across a range of vehicles.

"The fact that it died in SA is an opportunity we can look at it totally differently," Mr Gupta told the American Chamber of Commerce in Adelaide on Friday.
