Nissan St. Petersburg is getting ready to cut production

TASS. – Nissan Russia representative Roman Skolski has announced that St. Petersburg Nissan factory will reduce production, as of February. Skolski has said the following:

“Car production is on the decline, due to the difficult situation the Russian economy is in and the falling demand. We have created several scenarios, in order to cut costs without causing many redundancies, by analysing the situation at Nissan Manufacturing Rus factory. The factory will reduce production, as of February. The discontinuation of production later on is also on the cards.”

The Nissan representative have stated their faith in the future of the market despite the current difficulties, on the other hand.

The models manufactured at the factory, where 2200 people work in two shifts, are as follows: X-Trail, Teana, Murano and Pathfinder.
