A new Nissan plant has just been opened in Aguascalientes, Mexico. This is the company’s second plant in the town and third in the country, generating 3,000 new jobs at the plant and 9,000 indirect jobs. The facility also gave work to the team of 2,500 people who constructed it over the last 19 months.
The demand for Nissan vehicles has been consistently on the rise, and the new plant should help deliver to consumers what they want. Initial annual production for the Nissan plant will be 175,000 vehicles, helping to augment Nissan’s vehicle output in Mexico from 680,000 to 850,000, a 25% boost.
The main feature of this new Mexico Nissan plant is its multiple platform capability. The advanced and flexible technology systems enable Nissan to build vehicles from several different platforms, ensuring that it can adapt to changing consumer demand without having to rebuild an entire facility to deliver new products.
A brand new 2014 Nissan Sentra will be the first vehicle and the first model to be produced at Aguascalientes 2, but you don’t have to wait for that to get your hands on one at Nissan of Lake Charles. Stop on by to test drive one today and see why they’re turning heads left and right!
