They may not be “too active” of late – with only their pick-ups being the more common sight on the road aside from their GTRs but Nissan has reach a new milestone many can’t even dream of boasting.
Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. has, on a global scale, produced 150 million vehicles. It took the Yokohama-based manufacturer an arduous 73 years to hit the 100 million mark since Nissan’s humble beginnings in 1933 and in the last 11 years, built another 50 million.
When the 100 million milestone took place in 2006, 76.5% of the total were produced in Japan. The figures have been helped by locally-assembled vehicles in the last 11 years where 76.5% of the last 50 million have been produced outside of Japan – with U.S and China being the main contributors.
Here’s an infographic of the Nissan’s long but fruitful road to this epic milestone.
