Nissan is gearing up for some extra productions of vehicles and heavy investments for its facilities. The manufacturer is planning to develop 85 percent of vehicles in North America by 2015.

The manufacturer will offer jobs to around 9, 000 employees and will expand its reach by producing 425, 000 vehicles for North America along with 200, 000 lithium-ion batteries for its new cars. Nissan already has its NA plants working on some significant models, but the manufacturer believes to expand the productions of all Nissan and Infiniti models that are sold in U.S. Nissan’s Smyrna, Tennessee Plant. This plant will soon resume its service in producing Rogue and Leaf and the Canton, Mississippi plant will add Nissan Sentra to its lineup. To expand its lineup, Nissan will offer 1,000 new jobs for Canton by improving the payroll of its 4,500 workers.

Other than this, Nissan also has its engine plant located in Decherd, Tennessee that will add total 90 jobs in 2012 and around 400 new jobs at the end to build the proposed electric motors for Daimler and leaf. Not only this, the manufacturer is also in plans to invest $2 billion to start up a new plant where around 3000 new workers will be appointed for developing 175,000 subcompacts later next year. Furthermore, Nissan’s Farmington Hills, Michigan research group will get additional 150 new workers for development and engineering of new vehicles.
