Nissan’s Juke vehicle will begin rolling off the production line at the company’s Sunderland plant in the coming weeks. The company said that, thanks to the technology that is made possible by the plant, there will be no need for further rework on the exterior, interior or electrical systems of the compact crossover.
In a statement, Kai Frolova, operations manager at the Sunderland plant, praised the current technological capabilities of the facility as well as the skills of its workers. He added that the new capacity allowed the plant to produce more than 300,000 units of the new model each year. This brings its production capacity at its Sunderland plant to nearly 400,000 units a year. The plant employs over 15,000 workers.
This is not the first time that Nissan has improved its Sunderland plant’s capabilities. A year ago, the company announced a partnership with Hitachi Energy Systems and included a new feed-in tariff to support domestic electricity supply. The company said that it had also prepared a technology conversion facility to enable the plant to produce fuel cell cars.
