It’s official: since Nissan started manufacturing in the U.S. 31 years ago, 1 million Nissan vehicles have been exported from the U.S. That’s an extraordinary number for a brand that’s only growing more and more in the U.S. each year. In fact Nissan met many milestones in 2014 and hit a record of 1,386,895 vehicles. Thanks to new models like the Nissan Leaf, Rogue and Infiniti QX60 Nissan added over 4,000 new jobs.

The Nissan Leaf is manufactured at the Nissan plant in Smyrna, Tennessee that has specialized manufacturing facilities to create the innovative parts for the Leaf. Over 648,000 Nissan vehicles were made at the Smyrna plant in 2014, which was the automotive plant with the highest production in North America last year.

Nissan U.S. has manufacturing plants in Smyrna, Tennessee and Canton, Mississippi and exports to 68 markets in the world, in which New Zealand, Taiwan, Asia Pacific and Canada are the largest.

Over 13.7 million vehicles and 7.6 million engines have been manufactured in the U.S. since 1983. Since then some of Nissan’s most popular vehicles have been released like the Nissan Leaf, Altima, Rogue and many more.
