The automaker will support the protest of BMW and Toyota over Brexit, halting production at its British plants for a week.

Concern CEO Ralph Spet said the Jaguar Land Rover will now have to save money, including by halting production at four British plants in the first week of November.

 “We cannot think about it, we just have to do it. I need 20 million parts a day, and that means I have to make commitments to my suppliers, I have to have every part available so that the production does not stop, ”he told reporters at an event dedicated to the opening of a new center to create Advanced Product, in Heydon, Central England, on Thursday.

This step will affect three car factories of the company, which last year assembled a little less than a third of 1.5 million cars in the UK, as well as an engine factory in Wolves.

In August, Toyota announced it would stop production of cars at its British plant on November 1, while BMW would stop production at its Oxford Mini plant on October 31 and November 1.

 Industry, Britain’s largest exporter of goods, has openly voiced its concern that promiscuous withdrawal from the EU could disrupt the flow of parts and vehicles, disrupt production processes, and damage the viability of factories.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has promised to withdraw Great Britain from the EU with or without a deal on October 31. However, it remains unclear whether this will happen or whether a referendum will be held or Brexit will even be canceled.
