This is an enterprise in the province of Hubei. The conveyor will begin to work in full at the end of the week.

Global automakers are gradually resuming their factories in China. Following Honda Motor, the same statement was made by another Japanese manufacturer – Nissan. Nissan in Hubei was closed in February amid the spread of the coronavirus epidemic in China.

Initially, the company’s management planned to restart production on February 24, but local authorities issued a decree banning it. Previously, other Nissan enterprises in China have already begun their work. During the downtime, sales of the Japanese company in February fell sharply.

 According to preliminary data, sales of Nissan cars in February fell by 80% compared with last year’s figure for the same period.

 Representatives of Nissan said that by the end of April they plan to come close to last year’s sales level.
