Nissan has announced plans to expands its North American production capacity to more than 2 Million units per year in 2014. The Japanese automaker will invest at least $5 billion in new plants across the two American continents and add more than 10,000 jobs in the United States, Mexico and Brazil.
Moreover, Nissan has commenced building an all-new $1.5 million manufacturing complex in Resende, Brazil. The new facility will have an annual capacity of 200,000 “V” platform vehicles with production scheduled to start in the first half of 2014.

Also, the company has announced that production of four-cylinder gasoline engines for Infiniti and Mercedes-Benz models will begin in early 2014 at an all-new Renault-Nissan Alliance powertrain plant in Decherd, Tennessee.

At the time of writing, Nissan operates seven vehicle assembly plants in North and South America, two in the United States, three in Mexico, and two in Brazil.
