Nissan has released a statement after its chief executive said he would "reconsider" the car maker's future in the UK if it left the European Union.
“As a global company we always want to ensure that our business has the opportunity to operate as freely as possible in markets around the world. The whole of Europe is a vital market to Nissan and we also recognise how important theUK market is and must remain, so we will support future policy decisions to continue to support that success.”
The new Qashqai model will be built at Nissan's Sunderland site, which employs 6,500 workers.
