    In the past few weeks, LDV has relaunched in Ireland, with talk of a return to the UK not being ruled out by the company’s bosses. The brand has just launched a new website, showing the new V80 (a mildly restyled Maxus) outside the famous Guinness distillery at St James’s Gate in Dublin.

    "The prospect of production returning to Washwood Heath is nil, or, indeed, to anywhere in the UK for that matter…"

    an EU-compliant RHD van arriving from China? Can't remember what has happened to Malaysia other than that the van is on sale there, but if they pay the import duty a van assembled in Malaysia or Thailand (and not Longbridge) could be the future plan.


    Which would mean all that extra space in Longbridge was not needed for Maxus.

    However, if exporting RHD Maxus to the EU, why to Ireland (pop. 5m) and not the UK (pop. ~65m)?
