Nissan confirms its plans for Aguascalientes are still standing

Nissan Mexico confirmed that its plans for premium vehicle production at its Compas plant in Aguascalientes remain unchanged. Therefore, the manufacture of Infiniti vehicles will start in 2017, and Mercedes Benz’s will start in 2018. Compas (Cooperation Manufacturing Plant Aguascalientes) is the manufacturing complex of the Daimler and Renault-Nissan alliance, with total capacity of its plant for 250,000 units. Nissan decided in October that its premium Infiniti brand is not going to use MFA2, an enhanced auto platform by Daimler which the two Companies founded together. Daimler and Nissan follow joint programs only when they benefit both parties, underscored the two companies in their statements.
