Nissan Murano Z51

Nissan announced that it will temporarily modify production at three of its manufacturing plants in Japan, as the coronavirus outbreak has significantly impacted the sales in the auto industry.

The automaker stated it will stop the vehicle production located at Oppama facility on April 3, 13, 24 and May 1, while the Tochigi plant will stop production from April 6 to 22 and May 1.

Meanwhile, Kyushu plant’s night shift will be stopped from April 2 to 30 and also on May 1.

Not just in Japan, earlier this month, Nissan has also announced stopping production in Africa, Europe, Middle East, India and in North America because of the spread of virus, which has caused severe disruption throughout the global auto industry.

About 1,866 people in Japan have been confirmed as being infected with the coronavirus. The virus has killed 54 people in the country.
