Nissan scraps plan to build new X-Trail model in Britain

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Carmaker Nissan has scrapped plans to build its new X-Trail SUV in Britain and will produce it solely in Japan, warning two months before Brexit that uncertainty over Britain's departure was making it harder to plan for the future.

Falling demand for diesel cars in Europe has forced Nissan to invest in other technologies and save costs.

It cut hundreds of jobs at its Sunderland factory in the north of England, Britain's biggest car plant, last year as output slumped 11 percent, hit by levies and crackdowns on diesel.

"Nissan has increased its investments in new powertrains and technology for its future European vehicles," the firm said.

"Therefore the company has decided to optimize its investments in Europe by consolidating X-Trail production in Kyushu." Labour party Member of Parliament for Sunderland, Julie Elliott, said "it's devastating news" but said she was unsurprised by the move due to Brexit uncertainty.
