Post-Brexit Woes for UK Car Makers
A post-Brexit requirement by the EU requires 40% of electric vehicle parts to be sourced from the UK or EU, specifically for vehicle to be sold within the EU. Otherwise, those sales are hit with a 10% tariff. However, currently auto manufacturers are still importing the majority of batteries from Asia and won’t be able to comply in time for when these rules come into effect.
Leading to UK-based automakers asking for a delay in putting these rules into effect otherwise there is risk of car factories being shut down and even being moved out of the UK.
