The Sunderland plant is one of the most successful for Nissan. When it comes to what matters (i.e. profit and efficiency), Nissan will keep the Sunderland plant going. The EU and our fifth columnists can bleat on all they want, Nissan will follow the money.Clearly Nissan have simply made a mistake... somebody (the tart in the typing pool probably) mistyped ‘Sunderland’ and it came out as ‘Barcelona’. They look and sound very similar after all so an easy mistake to make and as we know, Brexit guaranteed the closure of every car factory in the UK, not Spain.
Watch out for a statement by Nissan correcting the error.
