Nissan Mexico Exported Its Five-Millionth Vehicle Since 1972, A NP300 Frontier

Read more

Nissan Mexico has exported its five millionth vehicle since it started shipping cars overseas in 1972, confirming its position as the automaker’s largest vehicle exporter worldwide. The five-millionth unit was a red Nissan NP300 Frontier pickup shipped from Veracruz and destined for Colombia, one of the top export markets for Nissan from Mexico.

The all-new Nissan NP300 Frontier was launched last March in Mexico, but there’s no word yet about a launch date for the United States. Assembled at Nissan Mexico’s plant in Cuernavaca, Morelos, the NP300 Frontier is one of the favorite trucks in the country, with 5,095 sales since its launch.

“The quality of Mexican labor is reflected in the vehicles we export to over 50 countries. Our exports are driven by our brand promise in terms of quality, design, technology and durability. It is a great responsibility, and we are proud to achieve it,” said Airton Cousseau, managing director, Nissan Mexico.

Approximately 70 percent of Nissan Mexico’s annual production goes to export. In 2002, Nissan reached one million exported vehicles from Mexico. In 2007, the company reached two million units, with the three-million milestone mark achieved in 2010. The four-millionth was accomplished within three years in 2013.

Export numbers include models such as the Sentra, Tiida, March, Note, Versa, Tsuru, NV200, NV200 Taxi NY, NV250 (VAN), NP300 and the new NP300 Frontier. During fiscal year 2014, Nissan Sentra had the largest export volume and was shipped mainly to the U.S. and Brazil, with a total of 219,336 units.
