Nissan breaks October production record

Japanese automobile manufacturer Nissan has broken its all-time global production record for the month of October.

The company constructed 341,036 units over the course of the month – a 16.3 per cent year-on-year increase.

A 21.3 per cent growth in production against last year was recorded in the UK, with 35,447 models, largely due to the Qashqai range.

Mexican manufacturing rates increased by 14.2 per cent to 51,145 units while in the US, the Altima car pushed the month’s total to 14.2 per cent – a 3.8 per cent hike.

In its home country of Japan, the firm registered a 10.9 per cent increase to 112,698, thought to be down to the introduction of the new Rogue vehicle, the Infiniti G35 sedan and G37 coupe.

Meanwhile, the company is recalling close to 700,000 Sentra and Altima vehicles in North America due to a glitch in the software installed in the vehicles.
