BMW preparing for a 'hard complicated' Brexit

By Adam Parsons, business correspondent
German car giant BMW has told Sky News it is making contingency plans for "all scenarios" when Britain leaves the European Union - including "a hard complicated Brexit".
The company sells around 250,000 cars a year in the UK, which is BMW's fourth-biggest market after China, the United States and Germany.But BMW has been critical of preparations for Brexit, and those criticisms are now intensifying.Speaking to me at the Paris Motor Show, where BMW is unveiling it crucial new 3-series model, the firm's chief financial officer Nicolas Peter seemed exasperated when we spoke about Brexit.He said: "Are we disappointed with the progress [of Brexit negotiations] so far? Yes we are, so we have to prepare for all different scenarios, including a hard, complicated Brexit where supply chains will be impacted for a couple of weeks.
