Nissan will build a new North American plant to produce Infiniti vehicles

Article by Christian A., on April 15, 2013

According to the latest reports from WSJ, it appears that Nissan is considering a new plant in North America where it aims to produce at least 100,000 Infiniti vehicles per year. Currently, Infiniti production is totally concentrated in Japan but this is changing as in May 2012 the company announced that it will produce two models for the Chinese market in Xiangyang with Dongfeng, Nissan’s local partner.

Still, Infiniti Motor Co. President Johan de Nysschen said that it will announce more details around the Shanghai Auto Show, which will open its doors on April 21. Moreover, Infiniti will also build premium compact models for the global market at Nissan’s Sunderland plant found on the United Kingdom starting 2015.

Apparently, Nissan’s move to produce vehicles in other countries is an effort to lower company’s exposure to yen and produce more cars in the markets where these are sold.

For the North American plant, Infiniti is considering building a plant in the US, Mexico and Canada. Still, no decision has been made yet, according to de Nysschen. Infiniti is expected to start production at its new North American plant in 2017 and it is planning to invest about $2 billion.
