Nissan will need to reapply for UK government funding: Greg Clark

Greg Clark

British Business Minister Greg Clark stated on Monday Nissan will have to reapply for government funding made available to the vehicle industry, after it scrapped strategies to construct its new X-Trail SUV in Britain.

Previously on Monday the government released a letter Clark wrote to Nissan in 2016 which included a promise of up to 80 million pounds of support to help protect a major investment from the Japanese automaker.

“Grant support for training and development and environmental improvements were applied for and authorized … on the basis that both the Qashqai and the X-Trail models would be built in Sunderland,” Clark informed parliament.

“They will be invited to re-submit an application in the light of the changed investments that they are making.”
