Nissan (NSANY.OB) says its US manufacturing on track to nearly double export markets by end of 2015.
The company plans to boost its Americas production capacity to more than 2M units in 2014, driven by recently added capacity at its U.S. plants, as well as new facilities in Mexico and Brazil.
In August, the company shipped the first U.S.-built, right-hand drive Pathfinders to Australia and New Zealand. With the addition of these two new markets, it now exports vehicles to 61 markets around the world.
Over the next six months, it plans to expand U.S. exports of Altima, Pathfinder, Maxima and Infiniti QX60 models into new markets such as Ghana, Nigeria, Philippines, Vietnam, Israel, Argentina and parts of Latin America.
