In China, the market falls: Nissan Motor cuts car production

December 29, 2018 0 By autotimesnews

The Japanese brand made a “volitional” decision to reduce the production of cars at its three Chinese factories. According to reports from insiders in 2019, 30,000 fewer cars will be produced.

The largest automobile market in the world – China is experiencing some difficulties due to the trade war with the United States and the slowdown of the economy. According to official information, the growth in car sales is gradually falling, which forces local and foreign companies to make adjustments to their own production plans. The Japanese company Nissan Motors was no exception.

So, according to unnamed sources who are in fairly close circles to the leadership, in 2019 the plan will be reduced by 30,000 cars. But It is worth noting that the previously scheduled number of cars for the production of cars is not called. But from December 2017 to February 2018, the company produced almost 400 thousand cars in China.

Recall that Nissan has three factories in China, which produce a wide model line in collaboration with local enterprises. A drop in demand in the local market can affect the company quite strongly.
