Nissan’s Sunderland plant at risk if UK leaves EU without deal
No-deal Brexit tariffs would make manufacturing in Britain unviable, says carmaker
Nissan has warned that its Sunderland manufacturing plant is still under threat if the UK leaves the EU without a trade deal.
Last week Nissan said that the UK’s largest car manufacturing plant would stay open as it announced plans to cut £2.3bn in costs worldwide. However, the carmaker has said it would need to “improve efficiency” at the factory in the north-east of England, which employs 6,700 staff.
