Nissan new X-Trail to be made in Japan instead of Sunderland
Nissan has confirmed that the new X-Trail originally planned for its Sunderland plant will instead be made in Japan. Nissan has made cars at Sunderland since 1986 and employs almost 7,000 people. "They have reiterated today their commitment to the UK by continuing to manufacture in Sunderland the current Qashqai, Leaf and Juke models and the new Qashqai model from 2020.". There had been concerns that Nissan - part-owned by France's Renault - could move production to France in future to avoid any post-Brexit EU tariffs. When the X-Trail investment was initially announced, Nissan said hundreds of jobs would be created at the Sunderland plant.
