LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Friday that Nissan's (OTC 🙂 decision to source batteries from the UK to avoid tariffs on electric cars after the Brexit trade deal with the European Union was a big vote of confidence .
"This is a huge vote of confidence in the UK and fantastic news for the brilliant Nissan Sunderland workforce and electric vehicle manufacturing in the country," Johnson said on Twitter.
Chief Operating Officer Ashwani Gupta said Brexit-related issues in ports since Jan. 1 are "peanuts" for Nissan as it faced COVID-19 and natural disasters.
