New Nissan Navara will be made in South AfricaApril 11, 2019
Intending to double sales in Africa, the Middle East and India, the Japanese automaker Nissan announced on Wednesday a new production center in South Africa for the Navara pickup.
In order to start production of the pickup, the company will have to invest in existing production in Africa millions of dollars. In addition, the company will have to introduce new shifts at the plant, which will probably require about 1,200 new employees. Navara production in Rosslyn is scheduled to begin in 2020.
“We already have strong industrial facilities in Africa, including plants in Egypt, Nigeria, South Africa and the future plant in Algeria.” This is stated in a statement by Peyman Kargara, chairman of Nissan’s operations division in Africa, the Middle East and India.
No details about the future production yet. It can be assumed that Navara is one of the flagships in the company’s plans for the development of sales.
