Britain stated on Tuesday it was deeply disappointed by Honda’s decision to shut down its sole British car plant.

“The UK is one of the leaders in the development of these technologies and so it is deeply disappointing that this decision has been taken now,” Business Secretary Greg Clark stated.

“This is a devastating decision for Swindon and the UK,” Clark stated. “This is a commercial decision based on unprecedented changes in the worldwide market.”

Honda stated it had informed workers about what it called its “proposal” to shut down the Swindon plant.

“Honda of the UK Manufacturing has today informed associates (employees) of the proposal to shut down its Swindon vehicle manufacturing plant, at the end of the present model’s production lifecycle, in 2021,” Honda stated.
