Nissan Motor Co. plans to move production of its Infiniti sport-utility vehicle to Japan from the U.S. next year, Nikkei English News said, without citing anyone, Bloomberg reported.
Output of the full-size Infiniti QX56 SUV, currently made in Mississippi, will be shifted to Nissan Shatai Co.’s Kyushu plant, the report said. About 5,000 units of the model were made at the Mississippi plant in fiscal 2008, the report said.
The Japanese automaker has already transferred output of its Quest minivan from Mississippi to the Nissan Shatai factory, the Nikkei said. Nissan is considering using the Mississippi plant to produce a new small commercial vehicle that will be sold next year, the report said. (Bloomberg)
