That's not how capital investment works. You just don't shut up shop overnight. Planning and scheduling big moves takes years and years.Nope I don't keep self owning. Do you have problems with basic comprehension? Do tell me about why Honda's Turkey operations are also disappearing. Also did you notice they are only formally closing THREE YEARS from now? If they were worried about tariffs, theyd be closing much faster!
This makes zero sense. Because of the FTA, they don't have to move to a country inside the EU. With the UK in the EU they have the benefit of zero tariffs, plus proximity to the biggest market in the world.Chris_the_Brit said:The EU-Japan FTA means there is no incentive to build in Europe, hence why no car production is going to any of the EU countries. If Brexit is the main cause as Remoaners likely you are making it out to be (which is false), then you'd think they'd be moving car production to a country inside the EU, which they are not.
The UK has been the gateway to Europe for a lot of auto manufacturers for a long time. If they're going to be hit with tariffs it makes no sense to keep it that way.
It's not only because of Brexit, similar to Nissan, but it played a significant role.
