Nissan Parts and Vehicle Production Slowed Through April

April 01, 2011

YOKOHAMA, JAPAN – Nissan is aiming to resume normal operations at all of its Japan-based plants save for the Iwaki engine plant by mid-April. The company has been producing vehicles using its remaining supplies but said its operational levels will be limited depending on parts delivery status from suppliers.

The company said it is suspending operations for five of its plants between April 4-8. In addition, another plant that produces parts for overseas manufacturing and repair is shut down until April 4, after which the company plans to resume production.

Nissan stated that since the earthquake, it estimates the production impact at 55,000 units when compared with its original production targets.
