Nissan produces two-millionth vehicle at Aguascalientes, Mexico plant
Aguascalientes, Mexico – Nissan Mexicana celebrated the production of its two-millionth vehicle from the Aguascalientes plant this week.
The car, a blue Sentra SE-R Spec V, will not be sold. Instead, portions of the vehicle will be cut away and it will be turned into an exhibition making internal structure and mechanics visible.
Through the past quarter-century, Nissan’s Aguascalientes Plant has produced more than a dozen different model lines, including Tsuru, Tiida/Versa, both hatchback and sedan, Platina and the Renault Clio; this last one is fruit of the Renault Nissan Alliance.
In Mexico, three generations of the Sentra have been built and sold since 1995. Sentras account for more than half (1.2 million) of the vehicles produced at the plant.
The Aguascalientes Plant is one of the most productive for the Nissan worldwide and achieved the two-millionth milestone just a few months before its 25th anniversary. In 2007, production in Aguascalientes is expected to be around 350,000 units, compared to the 274,373 built in 2006.
“Once again, Nissan and its Aguascalientes Plant show dependability and productivity levels which have put it among the best in the corporation,” said Mr. Armando
