Nissan Terra, Navara Production Suspended Until May 3

Nissan announced a temporary adjustment to its Thailand production in response to the continuing COVID-19 outbreak and decreased demand in the automotive market.

Following the advice and guidance of the Thai government, Nissan is halting production at Plant 2 in Samut Prakan from today until May 3, 2020, while production in Plant 1 will be adjusted to meet current demand levels. Adjustments will also be made at associated operations, including engine assembly and stamping.

“Our goal is to resume normal business operations as soon as possible, but ensuring the safety and well-being of all our employees, their families and Thai society is our priority right now given the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Ramesh Narasimhan, the president of Nissan in Thailand.

Nissan’s plant in Samut Prakan has a combined annual capacity of 370,000 units per year, and exports the Navara and Terra to countries such as the Philippines.
