Nissan dealers warned of production cuts at key U.S. plant

A separate supplier memo obtained by Automotive News specifically outlined cuts at Nissan’s Canton, Miss., factory.

Line 1, which assembles the Titan full-size and Frontier midsize pickup, will run production four days per week for the rest of November. Production of the low-selling Titan ends in late 2024.

Line 2, which builds the Altima midsize sedan, will run production two days per week this month. Nissan could replace the gasoline-powered Altima with an electric model around mid-decade.

Thanksgiving week will be a nonproduction week.

The December production schedule is expected to be similar to November’s.

Nissan projects overall dealer shipments to increase “quarter over quarter” despite the planned production cuts.

The Canton plant is gearing up to build electric vehicles. Nissan will initially build two battery-powered sedans — a Nissan model and an Infiniti — starting mid-decade. Plans also call for two electric crossovers — one for each brand — to be built at the 4.7 million-square-foot factory, according to a source.
