"In 1952 Nissan and Austin agreed on a tie-up and in April of the following year knockdown production of the A40 Somerset Saloon started. On April 4 the first vehicle came off the line at the Tsurumi Austin factory, and on May 8 a commemorative launch event was held in the city with guests including the Trade and Industry Minister and the UK Ambassador." - from here.
