It all started with the old Datsun operation
Nissan is a multinational company dealing with the manufacture and distribution of automotive. This Japanese automobile company was established in the year 1934. This was after it had acquired all the operations of Datsun. Its headquarters are located in Yokohama which is in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.
In the year 1935, Nissan produced its first Datsun. The first of its automobile was produced in its Yokohama plant in Japan. In the same year, Nissan Motor Company decided to start exporting cars to Australia. In the year 1938 to the end of World War II, Nissan decided to purely manufacture military cars and trucks, temporarily ceasing the production of small cars.
From the year 1945 up to a decade later, Nissan cars were not doing so well in the market. This was because Allied Occupation Forces had grabbed the company and taken over its production operations. It was not until about the year 1955 that Nissan regained control. From this time up to 1960, Nissan worked hard, producing some excellent models such as Nissan Bluebird (1959) and Nissan Cedric (1960). In the year 1960, the company won the engineering excellence prize, the Deming Prize.
Nissan Cedric, Bluebird and Sunny helped resume Nissan Company to its former glory. These Nissan models were fast in becoming popular among the Japanese community. And, soon enough they were boosting the company’s export sales.
In the year 1965, Nissan produced its first SUV and sold it in the US market. The release of the Nissan Patrol SUV was aimed at competing with the Land Rover that had just been released. This SUV was meant to offer more value for less, maintaining a high level of versatility.
In the 1989, one of the most luxurious models by Nissan was produced, that was the Nissan Infinity. This model was produced the same time that Nissan met their millionth sale of cars in America.
Up to date, the company has produced and sold millions of cars, the latest being the Nissan Leaf. This model was first produced in 2010 and is the first automobile ever to be 100% electric-driven.
