Nissan's industrial complex in Resende, Brazil, has produced 30,000 cars that were made for exporting to markets overseas, according to the automaker.
In its first year of producing vehicles for export, the plant produced 10,000 units, and in the following year saw a 200% increase, said Nissan. Between November 2017 and March 2018, the Nissan March, Nissan Versa and Nissan Kicks export models were responsible for a leap from 20,000 to 30,000 units.
Since December, the Argentinian market started to sell the Nissan Kicks that was produced at the Resende Industrial Complex. Argentina had already been receiving the March hatchback and the Versa sedan from Brazil's plant. Both models made in Brazil are also sold in Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, Panama, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay.
The timing coincides with the second anniversary of the plant's export program, which has grown as the result of increased demand in Latin America, according to Nissan.
