Nissan is adding 900 manufacturing jobs to the Smyrna, Tenn. Vehicle Assembly Plant, and the Nissan Rogue will now be built in America.
The announcement came at Nissan’s 30-year anniversary celebration in the United States.
The new Nissan Rogue will be produced in the United States for the first time.
“Our investment creates hundreds of new jobs and underscores Nissan’s longtime commitment to our employees and expanding operations around the country,” said Senior Vice President of Manufacturing Bill Krueger. “Our dedicated workforce in the United States continues to build high-quality vehicles, such as the Altima, Pathfinder and LEAF, which are driving growth with sales up a combined 70 percent in May.”
