    Manufacturing in the UK would be an economic decision not an emotional one. If it were to happen there would be enough EU and UK sourced components to ensure that there were tariff reductions. Things like tyres, brakes, and enough other components to get over tariff thresholds could Iím sure be sourced locally.

    I think, from article 43 item 1, that buying in components from the EU and assembling them would mean they wouldn't count as UK in origin. So only UK sourced components would count, plus any EU sourced components which required some final machining or similar.

    The bean counters and lawyers at Mahindra will be far better versed in tax law and how it affects their decisions relating to the company than anybody here. They will make decisions that are in the best interest of the company not ones that pander to the patriotic sensibilities of a few middle aged UK motorcycle buyers.
