Since the historic beginning on June 16, 1983, with the production of the first Nissan pickup truck in the United States. Nissan celebrates 40 years of people, products, and purpose that have driven Nissan’s growth and success in America. Over the past four decades, Nissan has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to vehicle manufacturing excellence, innovation, and customer satisfaction. The Smyrna, Tennessee assembly plant has become a centerpiece of Nissan’s presence in the United States and has played a vital role in the region’s economic and social development. Since that first  white 720 pickup truck, Nissan continued to expand production in the United States and has established a reputation for the quality and reliability of its vehicles. Nssan has been able to adapt to changing industry demands and deliver innovative products that meet the needs of American consumers and merge into electric vehicles.

“What started with one pickup truck has turned into four decades of manufacturing excellence. This milestone is not just about the products we have built and sold over the past 40 years. It’s also about applauding the more than 21,000 Nissan employees in the U.S. who will lead us into our future, our electrified future, and continue to improve our products and services for customers,” said Jérémie Papin, president of Nissan Americas. 

Nissan’s success in the U.S. is not limited to the company’s products alone. The company continues to cultivate strong relationships with local communities and has been an engine of economic growth in the region. Over the years, Nissan provided investment in new facilities and created jobs for thousands of people, providing opportunities and supporting the development of talent in the community. In addition, Nissan showed a commitment to sustainability and social responsibility through its actions, beginning to erase its carbon footprint. The company implemented initiatives to reduce its environmental impact including the adoption of electric vehicle technologies and the implementation of greener manufacturing practices. The automaker even started reissuing leaf batteries in its manufacturing facilities.

The passion and dedication of Nissan’s employees have also been fundamental to the company’s success, partnering  with local organizations on community projects that promote education, road safety, and social welfare. Over the years, they have worked incredibly hard to ensure vehicle quality was top tier and provide excellent customer service. Their commitment to excellence continues to be recognized nationally and internationally, cementing Nissan’s reputation as a trusted and respected brand in the United States.
