Nissan cancels X-Trail production in England

Nissan cancels X-Trail production in England”

Nissan's recent move appeared to be completely contrary to its initial statement followed by initiation of Brexit proposals dated back to July 2016, when it first said, that, they would be preparing a new model of SUV in United Kingdom, just after four months of the 2016's Britain vote that sealed an approach to propel forward with a divorce deal.

Nissan had announced its plan to build new SUV models at the Sunderland plant about a week after Clark's letter was sent.

The company's official statement said that in order to support heavy investment in new technology and equipment at its Sunderland operations (where the Juke, Qashqai and Leaf models will continue to be produced) it has made a decision to consolidate the X-Trail's production in its Japanese facility.

He said the money was not tied to X-Trail cars, but was linked to alternative technologies - developing electric cars and making sure the next generation of Qashqai cars could be electric.

"I believe their advice should be listened to so the automotive industry... can seize the opportunities for Britain to be a world leader".

In 2016, the United Kingdom government offered Nissan around $100 million to soothe its Brexit worries.

"Yet Labour's frontbench has evaded having a policy on this vital issue for our country, hiding behind six tests that are a fake and a sham designed expressly to avoid a deal and they know it".

The Department for International Trade said its priority was to ensure there was no disruption to UK-Japanese trade after Brexit, but that it would then seek to go further than the deal signed by Brussels.

Nissan's announcement comes a week after Jaguar Land Rover said it plans on cutting its global workforce by 4,500.

Britain on Monday will seek to reassure foreign investors anxious about Britain leaving the European Union after Japanese automaker Nissan said it was scrapping a major planned investment less than two months before Brexit.

Meanwhile Brexit figurehead Boris Johnson, Britain's former foreign secretary, warned that rumors of an imminent election could be a government "scare tactic" aimed at getting Conservative MPs to support a Brexit deal.

She said a "tipping point" has been reached, adding: "His government's handling of Brexit is undermining our industrial strategy".

"We will be praying for its future and encouraging the government to make its Brexit policy a lot clearer".

"Without real assurances from (Clark) and a firm commitment from him to take no deal off the table, it's hard not to think that managed decline is indeed the government's plan".
