  • Who owns Nissan?
  • Where is Nissan made?

Nissan is a Japanese company that’s part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, but there’s a lot more to the story than that. Read on and let the Edwards Nissan team walk you through the entire story in detail! And don’t forget, we’ve got plenty of new models just waiting for you!



Some Key Nissan Facts

Like we mentioned, Nissan is part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance and has been since 1999. The first Nissan vehicles were made in Japan in 1935 at the flagship Nishi-ku location at the Yokohama headquarters. Over the next few decades, Nissan vehicles grew in popularity, especially after its 1958 debut in the United States. In 1990, Nissan North America was set up in Franklin, Tennessee and has operations in the following areas:

  • Automotive styling
  • Automotive engineering
  • Consumer/corporate financing
  • Sales and marketing
  • Distribution
  • Manufacturing

Where is Nissan From? 

Nissan has production facilities across the globe that all lead to the cars you see on the road in Bellevue and La Vista. Even though this company has its global HQ in Japan, production of Nissan products began in Mexico in 1966. The Nissan brand branched out to production facilities in Australia, Taiwan, and in 1983, the United States.

Currently, there are Nissan manufacturing facilities in America in these locations:

  • Smyrna, Tennessee
  • Decherd, Tennessee (Nissan and INFINITI)
  • Canton, Mississippi

The Smyrna plant is the highest-volume car manufacturing plant in North America. It’s responsible for some of the hottest Nissan models like the Altima, Maxima, Leaf, Rogue, Pathfinder, and INFINITI QX60. The trucks are made at the Canton, Mississippi location, which went online in 2003.
