Nissan: Country of Origin and Manufacturing

Is Nissan foreign? In short, yes. The first ever-Nissan manufacturing plant, Yokohama, began production in 1935 in Japan. The site now serves as the Nissan Global headquarters and is still used for Nissan vehicle production today. In fact, Nissan owners and loyalists alike are able to tour the Yokohama headquarters! The Japanese Nissan production plants include: 

  • Tochigi Plant
  • Oppama Plant
  • Yokohama Plant
  • Iwaki Plant

When it comes to what country makes Nissan vehicles though — it isn’t just one. Today, different facilities in multiple countries focus on building one or more of the beloved Nissan models. For instance, in North America alone, production of the following vehicles occur in these places: 

  • Smyrna, TN— Nissan Altima, Maxima, LEAF, Pathfinder, Rogue
  • Decherd, TN— Production of engines, forgings, castings, electric motors
  • Canton, MS— Altima, Murano, TITAN, TITAN XD, Frontier, NV Passenger, NV Cargo
  • Jiutepec, México— Frontier, Versa
  • Aguascalientes, México— March, Versa, NOTE, Kicks, Sentra

The Smyrna Plant was the first U.S. Nissan production plant, established in 1980 as the demand for Nissan models and innovation grew amongst American drivers in towns just like Valdosta. In 1997, the Decherd Plant opened creating engines and powertrains. This hardworking facility sends a new Nissan off to a dealership every nineteen seconds!
