According to the latest available data from Business Registers and Employment Survey, which is part of the Office for National Statistics (ONS), in 2018 there were 54,000 people employed in the automotive sector in the West Midlands region.

Employment data by sector is not available at constituency level. However, according to the latest available data from Nomis, a service provided by the ONS, in 2018 the number of manufacturing jobs, including automotive, was 10,000 in the North East Coventry constituency and 11,000 in the South Coventry constituency. Similarly, the wholesale, retail trade, and repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles industry employed 5,000 people in each of the constituencies in 2018.
