Nissan has a long and diverse history. It has not all been plain sailing since the company’s formation in 1934. At the turn of the Millennium, an ailing Nissan entered into an alliance with Renault. Subsequent events have shown this to be a part of one of the greatest corporate turnarounds in business history. Today one in every ten new cars built worldwide comes from the factories of these two companies.
The Japanese firm started British manufacturing in Sunderland in 1986. Nearly seven million cars have since been built at what is by some margin Britain’s largest car factory. In a modern-day twist on the old saying of ‘coals to Newcastle’, Qashqai and Micra models built in Tyne and Wear are now exported to the company’s homeland.
Toyo and Yokohama are among the tyres factory-fitted to many Nissan cars. The range extends from popular small hatchbacks like the Micra and Note to best-selling SUVs including the Juke, Qashqai and X-Trail. Nissan also produces the GT-R and 370 sports cars. The company is a pioneer of hybrid and electric technologies, being at the forefront of environmentally-friendly manufacturing and design. Needless to say, the company is perennially popular with British motorists, best known for the reliability of its cars.
