Vehicles manufactured in Mexico by Nissan have 80% domestic content.

Nissan has begun construction on its third manufacturing complex in Mexico and the second in the state of Aguascalientes. The complex is the result of a $2 billion investment announced last January to increase manufacturing capacity needed to satisfy demand for Nissan vehicles in the domestic and international markets. The new complex will be located to the south of Aguascalientes, near the airport, and will be 2.5 times larger than the existing plant. During its Phase 1, it will produce 175,000 compact vehicles per year (B-platform). To achieve this goal, Nissan will create 3000 direct jobs and generate approximately 9000 indirect jobs. Furthermore, the complex will include a supplier park and a quality proving ground. Phase I is expected to be completed in 20 months and to be operational by the end of 2013. Nissan's expanded production will be supported by a network of suppliers based at the adjacent supplier park, as well as from other locations.
