Nissan Motor has announced plans to invest BRL2.8bn (US$575m) in its Brazilian operations over the next two years. The investment will be used to produce two new SUVs and a turbocharged engine. The company made the announcement during its 23rd anniversary celebration in Brazil, which was attended by 2,400 people including plant workers, government officials, suppliers, and Nissan's global CEO Makoto Uchida.
One of the new SUV models will be the redesigned Kicks compact SUV, while details of the second SUV have not been released. However, Nissan did mention that it will be exported to 20 Latin American countries. The investment will be used to acquire additional manufacturing equipment and make a series of improvements to support the production of these new models.
The powertrain plant, where the announcement was made, will assemble an advanced turbo engine that will be used across the Nissan brand. This upgrade is significant as it is the first since the plant started operating in 2014. It is aimed at strengthening the plant's mission as an export hub.
Over the past decade, Nissan has made minor improvements to its Resende operations, focusing on improving ergonomics and incorporating new technology. With this new investment, Nissan's cumulative investments in its Resende operations will reach BRL6.2bn.
