We know Honda began production in 1998, the adventure will end in Turkey in the next two-year respite. As the shutter closing process of the factory in Kocaeli is approaching day by day, it is obvious that the Japanese-based manufacturer is definitely in a structuring for its facilities located in different parts of Europe.
The last of these structuring seems to affect the Swindon facility in England. In line with the developments brought to the fore by Nikkei, Honda decided to move a valuable operational part of the UK plant to Japan. According to sources, production of the Civic model will continue next year at the factory in Yorii, northwest of Tokyo.
There is actually a step underlying this decision that is not surprising for many people; "Brexit"… The clarification of Britain's exit from the European Union will affect the commercial developments of the car industry, as in many wings.
It is seen that the current customs tax for vehicles coming from Japan to SB countries is 7,5 percent. With Britain leaving the block, this number seems to rise to 10 percent if no political action is taken. - News7
