Nissan to add a second shift at its Russian plant
To confirm that the Russian market has returned to be attractive to major manufacturers in the world, having surpassed the serious crisis of the last four years, Nissan aims to add a second production shift line at the St. Petersburg factory.
The Japanese carmaker will therefore increase production at the factory in the wake of the regained vitality of its models in the country, especially the Qashqai, X-Trail and Murano SUVs.
The St. Petersburg factory, where over 450 new jobs have been created, has already strongly contributed to Nissan's production growth in Russia with 32,037 units assembled over nine months on a Nissan total of more than 52,500 vehicles.
By the end of the year, Nissan's Russian production will have grown by one third compared to 36,464 units in 2016.
