Nissan announced plans to start full production of the new Nissan LEAF at its Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant later this year, as the company strengthens its global leadership in zero-emission electric vehicles.
The next-generation LEAF, unveiled yesterday, will feature greater range, advanced technologies and a dynamic new design. The new LEAF will go on sale in the U.S. in the coming months.
“Nissan Smyrna has been the U.S. home of the LEAF since 2013, and we are honored to continue to assemble the most popular electric vehicle in the world,” said Heath Holtz, vice president, Manufacturing, Nissan Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant.
The Nissan Smyrna plant currently produces six models: Altima, LEAF, Maxima, Pathfinder, Rogue and the INFINITI QX60. The facility has an annual production capacity of 640,000 vehicles, and Nissan’s Smyrna workforce has assembled more than 12 million vehicles since opening in 1983.
