Tim Lawrence, manufacturing expert at PA Consulting, is quoted in an article in the Financial Times on Britain's automotive industry considering a more domestic approach to car production post-Brexit.
The article explains that some car makers, in light of the potential new tariffs, will consider making more of their locally-sold vehicles in Britain rather than exporting cars to Europe and the rest of the world. The article then goes to explore the costs and benefits of domestic-only production.
Tim says: "You either have to look at scaling down your factory, or being far more multi-product to make it work in the UK. Over time it’s feasible. I’m not saying it’s likely, but it’s feasible."
