Ford says a Brexit without agreement will cost the company US $800 million this year

Ford faces a US $800 million account if England leaves the European Union without an agreement, the Sky News television network quoted calculations by the US automaker.

The account includes fees from the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the impact of the devaluation of the pound.

Carmakers and other industries, including Airbus, warned that a Brexit without an agreement could create, in addition to higher rates, disruption of supply chains and unemployment.

England will leave the EU in 64 days and the British prime minister, Theresa May, has not supported her agreement proposal and companies are increasingly worried about a disorganized exit from the bloc’s country.

Ford has two engine factories in England, its third largest market, and the country receives one every three cars produced by the company’s factory in Cologne, Germany.
