Since its establishment in 1933, Nissan has produced about 76,640,000 vehicles in Japan and about 23,500,000 vehicles overseas. As of the end of June, Nissan’s total global production stood at about 100,140,000 vehicles.
"On behalf of Nissan, I would like to thank all our employees and customers around the world for their support without whom this important milestone would not have been possible," said Tadao Takahashi, executive vice president of manufacturing at Nissan. "We will continue to improve quality and productivity as well as shorten delivery times for customers."
Nissan was established in December 1933 under the name "Jidosha-Seizo Co" (Automobile Manufacturing Co) after taking over operations for manufacturing small-size Datsun passenger cars from Tobata Casting Co.
The first car produced by Nissan under the Jidosha-Seizo name was a Datsun Type 12. The company name was changed to "Nissan Motor Co" the following year.
