Nissan trades north for Tochigi

UK-Japan News February 2021

Nissan has chosen to produce its newest electric car, the Ariya, in Japan rather than the UK. According to a 17 December Nikkei Asia report, the Ariya will be made at Nissan’s Tochigi Prefecture plant. Due to post-Brexit trade deal concerns over higher tariffs, Nissan will ship the vehicle from Japan to the European Union when it becomes available for purchase next year.
