Where is Nissan produced?
One of the largest manufacturers of cars, as well as buses, trucks, boats and some other equipment is the Japanese auto concern “Nissan”. The company was founded in 1933 on December 26th. The auto company was established as a result of the merger of Nihon Sangyo and Tobat Imono subsidiaries.
Until 1959, the company's factories were located only in Japan, and the first production abroad was built in Taiwan. Concern "Nissan" owns its own fleet, and thanks to this fact since 1976 the company has become the largest supplier of cars in the world. Over the years, Nissan has combined with other car companies (Volkswagen, Renault, etc.). Today, the company's production facilities are located in 20 countries, including Russia.
