That's 'building' as in 'assembling'. Most of the parts, including the electric motor and electronics, are made elsewhere, mostly Germany. If the parts had to bear import tariffs, what would be the point of assembling them in the UK? Not to mention an EU import tariff on UK-assembled cars. Same applies to almost all of the "British" motor industry.

If fools like Fox and Bozo get their way, it's goodbye to all that, and Airbus, and that's just for a start.

Glorious Brexit will solve the tarrifs - you'll see! Because no deal is ... better ... than a bad ... deal ...

Wait - hang on ...

It's like this hasn't really been thought through.

Myky, the question was "What contract have BMW cancelled"

You titled the thread but you will not tell us what it is about

....or is it yet another figment of your imagination?
