Nissan has manufactured its 150 millionth vehicle, a monumental achievement for the Japanese auto-maker. A prototype of the new Leaf was the model that helped Nissan reach the 150 million mark. It took Nissan 73 years to hit 100 million in 2006. Their next 50 million took a mere 11 years.
Nissan sees this achievement as the result of 84 years of continued support from all of its stakeholders worldwide, including employees, dealers, suppliers and local communities, as well as the numerous customers, who have chosen cars produced by Nissan.
Japan is the highest producer of Nissan vehicles, accounting for 58.9 per cent (88.35 million) of all Nissan vehicles built. The next biggest producers of Nissans are the U.S. with 10.8 per cent, China (7.9 per cent), Mexico (7.9 per cent), UK (6.2 per cent), Spain (2.4 per cent), and others (5.8 per cent).
