Nissan will reconsider its investment in the UK if Britain leaves the European Union, chief executive Carlos Ghosn has told the BBC.
He was speaking in Sunderland, where Nissan employs 6,500 workers.
Prime Minister David Cameron has promised a public vote on EU membership in 2017 if the Conservatives win the next general election in 2015.
But Mr Ghosn also added that he considered the exit scenario to be unlikely.
When asked how Nissan would react if the UK were to leave the EU, Mr Ghosn said: “If anything has to change, we [would] need to reconsider our strategy and our investments for the future.”
