Due to the coronavirus, the ship had problems with unloading: the port was packed full of unsold cars.

Off the coast of Los Angeles, the Jupiter Spirit cargo ship drifted for almost a week with 2,000 new Nissan and Infiniti cars. The ship, which delivered Nissan Armada SUVs, Rogue crossovers and Infiniti sedans to America at the end of April, could not unload due to a crowded port. The ship arrived at the place on April 24 and drifted to the 29th, according to Bloomberg. The reason for this downtime is overcrowded unsold auto port and warehouses. Because of the coronavirus, car sales collapsed, and dealers are in no hurry to pick up new cars.

By the way, the COVID-19 pandemic affected the sales of cars around the world. So, in India, in April, because of the restrictions imposed, they did not sell a single car.

 Car brands whose products can be bought in the United States, in turn, report a reduction in their sales. Demand for cars of the Japanese brand Mazda, for example, last month fell by more than 44 percent. But the sales of the premium brand Genesis “dipped” immediately by 50 percent.
