Nissan to end Sunderland production of luxury Infiniti brand

Nissan also recently scrapped plans to build its new X-Trail SUV in Britain amid the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, saying it had taken the decision to optimise its investments by building the next generation model in Japan.

Two Infinitis are built in the United Kingdom - the Q30 and QX30 hatchbacks - alongside assembly lines for the Nissan Juke and Qashqai SUVs and Leaf electric auto.

The company says the plant management "will discuss any impact on the plant with employees and their representatives".

Infiniti announced on Tuesday that it is pulling out of the Western European market. The company's operations in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Asia will not be impacted by the restructuring plan.

The Nissan division added that it aimed to transform Infiniti into a "top challenger brand" in the premium sector of the world auto marketplace.

Infiniti promises that it will assist impacted workers in finding employment and negotiate end-of-franchise agreements with its retail outlets.

The restructuring plan "will focus the brand on its largest growth markets, specifically North America and China, while withdrawing from Western Europe", the statement said. It will still have a presence in terms of service, maintenance and warranty repairs, although it's unclear if they'll be Infiniti-branded centers or something else.

'Unite is confident however that workers on the Infiniti Q30 production line who want to stay with Nissan can be redeployed within the Sunderland plant onto other models, ' he said.

Sky News reported last week that shifts at the Sunderland plant could be reduced from three to two a day and potential result in up to 400 job losses.
