Who makes Nissan?
The Japanese company Nissan has been having a partnership with French car maker Renault since 1999. The long-term collaboration takes many forms. The two auto manufacturers have a chance to influence each other’s development, as Nissan has a 15% share in Renault, while Renault has a 43% share in Nissan.
Where is Nissan made?
Nissan trucks, the Frontier and the Titan, are assembled in Canton, Mississippi. Transmissions are brought from Japan, while engines come from the US (4 liter) and Japan (2.5 liter). At the same plant such models as Altima, Armada, Quest, NV, Frontier, Xterra, and Murano (2014) are born.
The second-generation Nissan Rogue is made in Smyrna, Tennessee, while the previous generation of the same model was built in Japan. Other models assembled in Smyrna include the Frontier, the Maxima, the Xterra, the Altima, and the Pathfinder. There are also Nissan manufacturing plants in Decherd, Tennessee, producing engines, forgings, castings, and electric motors.
The GTR hand built performance vehicle is built in Kaminokawa, Japan. According to other sources, the GTR, along with 370Z, are made at Nissan’s Tochigi facility in Japan. Versa, Cube, and 350Z are made in Oppama, while the Kyushu plant builds Murano (previously, it also produced Rogue).
