Production of Nissan's First Full-Size Pickup Begins in Mississippi Plant

October 27, 2003

On October 21, Nissan began production of its first full-sized pickup truck, the Titan, at its $1.43 billion manufacturing facility in Canton, Mississippi. The launch of the Titan is the third of five models to be produced at the plant, which will have the capacity to produce a total of 400,000 vehicles each year when fully operational.

The original 2.5 million square-foot facility was expanded by 1 million square feet, and Nissan increased its $930 million investment in Mississippi by $500 million. The plant has created 5,300 jobs, with approximately 30,000 indirect jobs as a result of its operation. In May 2003, production of the Quest minivan began, followed in August by the Pathfinder Armada full-sized SUV. The Titan is expected to be available at dealerships in December. In Spring 2004, the Nissan Altima and an Infiniti SUV will also be produced at the Canton facility.
