Nissan Training Center Opens in California
Nissan is stepping up its efforts on the American market, the one which is expected to do wonders for the Leaf electric vehicles. The opening of the Ontario Training Center marks the second such facility Nissan inaugurated this year, the other one being the center located in Livermore, California.
"Both Nissan and Infiniti continue to bring forward exciting new products to market and our consistent focus on ensuring a quality ownership experience to our customers will be strengthened by this new facility," said Mark Zinger, Nissan's director of customer loyalty and training.
"The late 2010 launch of the Nissan LEAF - the first all-electric vehicle for the mass market – will be directly supported by all-new and sophisticated training efforts as conducted at our new Ontario center."
The location in Ontario spreads for 27,000 sq.-ft. and includes an operational area, multiple classrooms, a component repair area, a vehicle demonstration area with wheel service and alignment areas, 25 service bays and 14 vehicle lifts.
Nissan expects the new center to be very busy. In all, Nissan operates ten such training centers in the US, which train and bring 9,000 technicians from 1,300 retail locations up to date with all the novelties coming from the Japan headquarters. As said, most of the training will cover the new Nissan Leaf.
