Nissan cancel X-Trail SUV manufacturing plan in UK ahead of Brexit deadline

Nissan, the Japanese automaker giant would be pulling themselves back from manufacturing the next models of their X-Trail Sports utility vehicle in UK, ahead of a boorish Brexit, which could potentially hurt the manufacturing cost and jeopardize the future of the vehicles, aimed at exporting in to the EU nations, a Sky News report revealed on Saturday, the 2nd of February, 2019.

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 UK, just after four months of the 2016’s Britain vote that sealed an approach to propel forward with a divorce deal.

However, the main production plant of current X-Trail is in Japan, while Nissan plant in northeast England, is used chiefly for manufacturing smaller Qaskqai SUV, alongside other models. Addressing to an initial abandoning of X-Trail productions in Britain less than two months before a chaotic Brexit, the Sky report stated, “Precise details of Nissan’s impending announcement were unclear this weekend, but sources said it was likely to initially involve abandoning the X-Trail production plans which had been announced in the autumn of 2016.

A UK spokesman of Nissan declined to respond immediately while asking for comments.
