Nissan sends Brexit shockwaves through UK motor industry

One of the underlying reasons for the decision was uncertainty over Brexit which was adversely affecting business, noting: "The continued uncertainty around the UK's future relationship with the European Union is not helping companies like ours to plan for the future".
Britain promised Nissan up to 80 million pounds ($104 million) of support and offered Brexit-related assurances to help secure a major investment from the Japanese carmaker in 2016, according to a well-guarded letter released on Monday. "We remain seriously concerned though that the apprenticeships and additional jobs that come with future investment and which this community so desperately needs will be lost", said Unite's Steve Bush.
The FT quoted from a letter sent by business minister Greg Clark to then-Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn in which he promises to protect the auto sector as Britain leaves the European Union.
Nissan has reneged on a plan to make the next-generation X-Trail in the United Kingdom and will instead supply the European market with the crossover from its Kyushu plant in Japan.
The newspaper said that Greg Clark, the business secretary, was told by the vehicle giant that the switch of production from Sunderland to Japan was now "not negotiable".
"From a Brexit perspective, the one thing it highlights is the uncertainty". It will instead produce the X-Trail in Japan.
Nissan is also expected to benefit from building these cars in Japan and exporting them to Europe since the two sides recently ushered in a landmark free trade deal. North East business leaders have been saying 'We need clarity, we need some certainty'.
