Update on operations in Japan

FOR the benefit of its dealers and customers, Nissan has issued a statement regarding the impact of the recent earthquake on its facilities and affiliated companies.

It says that all Nissan plants, except for the Iwaki engine plant, will be partially operational. As for the Iwaki engine plant, with aftershocks still heavily impacting the region and infrastructure reestablishment still continuing, restoration is expected to take longer than the other plants.

At Nissan’s Oppama, Tochigi, Kyushu, Yokohama, and Shatai plants, operations have resumed, but with limited production. However, vehicle production is expected to resume on March 24 while supplies last.

At the Iwaki Plant, Nissan is concentrating on restoring the plant back to operational level.
