Nissan in talks to build Renault models at Sunderland plant

Idk if Renault moves to Sunderland it could feasibly double the plant output generating more jobs.

I doubt they'd be discussing this move if Brexit never happened.

While there is risk, German car companies who exclusively import to the UK, not make here, are the vast majority of cars bought in the UK.

If we get a deal, then for Sunderland nothing changes. However a 10% tariff on some 70% of the cars currently sold in the UK represents a HUGE opportunity for the daring. A once in a lifetime opportunity to steal a massive amount of market share. Particularly as we move to electric and the population is natural already looking for a new brand to buy that focuses on electric or hybrid.
