Japanese manufacturer, Nissan has announced that they are recruiting more than 400 new people at their Sunderland plant where they will build an all new electric vehicle.

Last month Boris Johnson visited the Sunderland plant where he announced a £1bn investment plan to make car batteries for the new model called the EV 36Zero which will generate renewable power locally.

Nissan vice president Alan Johnson said, “This is a real vote of confidence in Sunderland from our parent company in Japan and will really reaffirm Sunderland’s reputation as a world-class manufacturer.

“These new recruits will play an important role in preparing the plant for the arrival of the new all-electric crossover model, as well as delivering Qashqai, Juke and LEAF to our customers in more than 130 world markets.”
