Nissan Worldwide Production By Nation : 2010


The fifth largest brand for car/LCV production is a brand I like, Nissan. I have never actually owned one, but think they are doing things better than most other Japanese brands.

Japanese production of the marque was 39% in 2005, but down to 27% in 2010. That is a smart move as Japanese car making is too expensive now. During the same period Chinese manufactured Nissans have risen for 5% to 24%. Below is the main places they are made:

1 Japan 1,060,000 27.2%
2 China 940,000 24.1%
3 USA 510,000 13.1%
4 Mexico 505,000 13.0%
5 UK 425,000 10.8%
6 Thaïland 185,000 4.7%
7 Spain 105,000 2.7%
8 India 43,000 1.1%
9 South Africa 41,000 1.1%
10 Taïwan 37,000 0.9%
11 Indonesia 33,500 0.9%
Total 3,910,000 +45.6%


Cars such as the GTR, Qashqai and Juke are really exciting, the Note and Maxima (Teana) practical as is the Tiida (Versa) but that particular car is very dull. So the range is varied to say the least.
