The head of Nissan has said he would "reconsider" the car maker's future in the UK if it left the European Union.
Carlos Ghosn, chief executive of the Japanese motoring company, says he will re-evaluate Nissan's position if the UK leaves the EU.
Speaking at the launch of Nissan's new Qashqai model, he said: "If anything has to change we (would) need to reconsider our strategy and our investments for the future."
He added that an exit is unlikely.
The new Qashqai will be built at Nissan's Sunderland site, which employs 6,500 workers.
