Cars Made in U.K. May Struggle to Be British Enough Post-Brexit

Post by DaveBerlin » Tue Aug 22, 2017 3:09 pm

Hopefully this does not turn sour for Sunderland - Dave ;)

Blomberg Quotes :
The EU side may not be willing to sign up to such an accord. France, for example, could seize the opportunity to induce Nissan -- which is 43.4 percent owned by Renault SA, which in turn is 15 percent owned by the French state -- to try to move its Sunderland manufacturing operations across the English Channel, said Holmes.

“Ultimately, the French government would quite like to see the production that goes on in Sunderland replaced by production somewhere in France,” he said. “So the French government might have a long-term interest in making these rules of origin slightly stricter.”

The U.K. government has given assurances to Nissan and Toyota, two of the country’s biggest carmakers, that they will remain competitive after Brexit.

Being out here you do not really get the feedback on the Brexit situation. Is it really this bad for the U.K. Motor Industry and the Workers - Dave :o

There is a lot of scaremongering going on against the UK democratic vote. But look around and most of the cars sold here are now from Germany and France. Even Ford Focus and Fiesta are made there. I bought my QQ to help support the local factory but I know a lot of parts they use come from elsewhere. Maybe if the EU impose sanctions on us we might get a better deal from Japan or the USA. I liked the Chrysler my daughter had in the US so I wouldn't have a problem changing. We already check where our everyday purchases come from and support UK farming. We now buy wine and other products from elsewhere.

After reading these three articles in the last few days are things really that bad for the U.K. Car Industry or is this just the worse scenario ? - Dave :(

This is how it works for “Honda” at present, Alloy Wheels delivered from Belgium to Swindon and most likely a similiar principle for other manufacturers - “Just in Time”, but is this going to change - Dave :)

Hopefully I am reading these articles wrongly because to me the situation seems to be getting worse especially for the UK Car Workers & the Support Parts Industry, all I am reading are negatives and I hope personally it gets sorted soon - Dave ☹️
