St. Petersburg Nissan factory will start the production of new Murano

CARscope.ru – St. Petersburg Nissan factory will start the production of the new generation of Murano crossover at the end of June.

According to CARscope.ru, the production of the previous generation of Murano currently continues at the factory, alongside the assembly of X-Trail, Pathfinder and Qashqai crossovers. Qashqai production started last Autumn, upon the discontinuation of Teana sedan.

The plant has reduced the number of shifts from double to single in Spring, which led to layoffs.

Nissan Qashqai and Nissan X-Trail are amongst the top-25 most popular cars in Russia, according to January-April 2016 market figures published by AEB.
