    Confirmed: Honda to close UK factory in 2021

    Written by Tom Harrison

    It"s official - Honda has confirmed that its Swindon factory is to close. The plant, which employs 3,500 people, will shutdown when the current Civic goes out of production in 2021. Honda first announced plans to close the factory, which produces 150,000 Civics annually (far less than its 250,000-car capacity), in February. It says that after a "meaningful and robust consultation process" involving the UK government and unions, it has concluded that there are "no viable alternatives" to the closure of the plant. The company says the decision to close the factory comes "in response to changes to the automotive industry". A statement said "Honda is accelerating its electrification plans, and as a result resources, capabilities and production systems for electrified vehicles will be focused in regions with a high volume of customer demand."

    More likely that the EU did a deal with Honda during the Brexit period. A period where the UK was forbidden to make trade deals!
