The British decision to withdraw from the EU may increase the vehicle prices of some Japanese vehicle makers who have factories in England.

Nissan has a factory in Sunderland in the north east of England which currently produces the Juke, Qashqai, Note and Leaf models.

“Clearly it is not good for the company - any changes to the EU market means that certain measures will have to be taken to ensure the success of the business. Therefore we constantly monitor the political situation in the area and wait for the UK‘s next steps,” said Mindaugas Plukys, Nissan spokesman for communication in the Baltic countries.

“There is a Toyota plant in England which produces the RAV4 and Auris models. Toyota Europe has not received any information about how the Brexit will affect Toyota prices. It is hard to speculate since the political situation is uncertain - perhaps England will not remain in the EU, and perhaps it will ... When a final formal decision will be taken then an analysis will be done and it will be possible to share more specific information,” said UAB Mototoja marketing and communications manager Ingrida Pranskevičienė.
