Japanese manufacturer Nissan have revealed a new six year business plans that will see them release a new vehicle on average every six weeks.
‘Nissan Power 88′ will be implemented immediately, running through until 2016. By then Nissan hope to have increased its global corporate operating profit to a sustainable 8% and its global market share to 8%, hence the name 88.
To achieve this Nissan plans to deliver new vehicle models on average every six weeks, increasing their portfolio to 66 vehicles which cover 92% of all markets.
Nissan car parts firms have supported and broadly share the views of both Nissan and its business partner, Renault, as they all move steadily more towards electric motor vehicles. Pure Drive encompasses low and zero emission vehicles under one banner.
The Light Commercial Vehicles (LCV) sector is also being targeted by the manufacturer as it bids to make Nissan the ‘New York City Taxi Of Tomorrow’ and the worlds leading manufacturer of LCV’s by 2016. Nissan vans are here to stay, which means that we are likely to witness demand for Used Nissan Van Parts gradually increase in the next few years.
The new releases will be available in more than 70 markets with a product range of at least 10 throughout the Nissan Power 88 roadmap.
Many however have criticised the firms plans calling them “unrealistic” both in production and consumption terms but CEO, Carlos Ghosn said:
“Nissan Power 88 is a demanding business plan but our company has a proven track record of achieving challenging objectives.”
