Car giant Nissan says it will make a decision next month on whether to produce the next Qashqai SUV at its Sunderland plant following Britain's vote to leave the European Union.

The firm has recently suggested investment in the factory could cease if its economic competitiveness is affected by Brexit.

The factory is Britain's biggest car plant and employs almost 7,000 people.

A government spokesman said talks with the company were "ongoing".

The Wearside factory produced 475,000 vehicles last year, of which 80% were exported.

Chief executive Carlos Ghosn was speaking to reporters at the Japanese company's headquarters in Yokohama, news agency Reuters reported.

It followed a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May at Downing Street last week.

'Preserving competitiveness'

He said: "We're not asking for any advantage [from the British government], but we don't want to lose any competitiveness no matter what the discussions."

Ghosn said he had received reassurance that the British government would be "extremely cautious" in "preserving the competitiveness" of the plant.

"As long as I have this guarantee... I can look at the future of Sunderland with more ease."

Production of the next Qashqai model is expected to begin in 2018 or 2019.

The time it takes to bring a new car into production means Nissan needs to decide where to make its next-generation model soon.

Businesses have been concerned that Britain is headed towards a "hard Brexit", which would leave it outside the single market and facing tariffs of up to 10% on car exports.

Well, what did you expect, when a "majority" voted for leaving the European Union. I'm afraid the British people will pay dearly.... Cry Ouch

We Brits don't like being threatened - even by our own government - that's why we voted out.

Yes,but I should imagine they will be thinking along the same lines as Nissan would be.Not looking real good.Going down the same path as us in Australia where everybody is packing up & leaving.It is a business after all & as such they have to look after their shareholders & the profitability & viability of the company.Cheers:):)

You are quite right Hackney but...

the majority of those who bothered to vote, voted out. Out leads to Brexit. Brexit hasn't happened yet nor does anyone actually know just how that will impact business in the UK.

So Nissan/Renault are making their decision before knowing all the impacts? - seems illogical and short-sighted, Nah, i don't believe they're that stupid. So... this is all about posturing to the UK government who they are trying to influence in their favour. There are other ways to describe that approach.

At the end of the day it will all depend on how the UK buyers perceive them. IMO, if they pulled out and showed such an utter lack of loyalty and respect to all those workers in Sunderland after all their efforts to bring such success to Nissan/Renault then they would not be competing against all these other makers on an equal footing they (imo) would be at a distinct disadvantage as I, and others who thought the same, would be unlikey to buy from them again.

We had the same issue with Ford(buyer "backlash") but the company in my opinion did the right thing by going to a full importer.They now have(& will have a great vehicle lineup) They looked after their workers & their entitlements & stood by them until the factory closed local production a few weeks back.We use to have Nissan in Australia,but they left in 1992(but still make components.)Holden & Toyota "close" up shop next year.Cheers:):)
