This new investment will contribute to the economy of the country which will become even stronger.

It is proof that by working together, the government and private sector can obtain a lot of good things for the country.

Infiniti will be the first new car brand to be developed in the UK on this scale in 23 years. The capacity of the Sunderland plant is of 60.000 Infiniti models per year. another rumor indicated the fact that at this new plant the specialists will built more than half a million cars for the first time. The global exports from the plant now exceed five million units. More information will be available at a later date.
