Nissan Mexican Production Plant Reaches Milestone
Nissan celebrated the production of its 200,000th vehicle at the A2 manufacturing complex located in the state of Aguascalientes, Mexico.
Only 16 months after the start of operations, Aguascalientes A2 plant delivered car number 200,000: a red Nissan Sentra SR with an Xtronic transmission and a 1.8L engine, to be shipped to Chicago, Ill, according to the automaker.
To achieve this figure, a total of 239 million auto parts, 80,000 tons of steel sheets and 1.2 million liters of paint were used over 6.6 million working hours, according to the automaker.
Every 55 seconds, a Nissan Sentra comes out of the production line at both plants in Aguascalientes, and undergoes a series of tests for its most important attributes, such as durability, safety, stability and comfort, meeting the rigorous standards of the countries to where it is exported, according to the automaker.
From the Vehicle Distribution Center next to Aguascalientes A2 plant, the 200,000 vehicles have been shipped to three main destinations: the United States (181,600 units), Brazil (17,400 units) and Puerto Rico (1,000 units), with 98 different specifications and 13 colors.
