Britain’s largest car factory may still not have a future if the UK leaves the European Union without a trade deal in place, Nissan has stated.
The Japanese firm’s Sunderland plant, which employs 7000 workers and made 350,000 cars last year, received a boost last week when Nissan confirmed it is committed to making it the centre of its European production operations.
However, the company's global chief operating officer claims that it's still at risk if a no-deal Brexit occurs.
Ashwani Gupta told the BBC: “You know we are the number one car maker in the UK and we want to continue. We are committed. Having said that, if we aren't getting the current tariffs, it’s not our intention, but the business will not be sustainable. That’s what everybody has to understand”.
