Nissan Brazil plant builds 150,000 cars in three years

September 20, 2017

Three years after starting operations, Nissan Brazil has now built 150,000 cars at its Resende Industrial Complex.

The milestone car was a grey Kicks, a crossover model designed primarily for emerging markets.

The plant, opened in April 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, also manufactures the March and Versa and added a second shift in July.

The Resende plant was built to support Nissan's plan to expand its footprint in Latin America. The plant passed the 30,000 mark a year after opening and 70,000 in two years. At the same time, in 2016, it began exports to eight Latin American markets. This year, five months after the third anniversary of the plant, Nissan achieved a new record in the number of cars produced locally, for both domestic and export markets.

Built from April 2017, the Kicks already accounts for almost 50% of monthly production. Workforce is now 2,400 people and the plant is part of an investment totalling BRL750m (US$239m).
