Thai floods: Nissan estimates 40,000 vehicles loss until Nov. 14 image

According to the latest report issued today by Nissan, the company estimates a total production loss of 40, 000 units based on production resuming on November 14.

Nissan Thailand plant from Samut Prakan is currently not affected by the flood, but production remains halted here due to supply disruptions. It is estimated to be resumed on November 14. Until now, the company expects a 40,000 vehicles loss.

The manufacturing units outside Thailand have not yet been affected by Thai supply chain issues, although some delays may exists in the case of certain cars. The company sees a 20,000 units output flaw in Japan and is working on measures to minimize it. Also, as production is forecasted to be launched on November 14, most of the issues should be solved soon.

Nissan announced on October 20 that it will donate another 40 million yen in cash, among the 11.5 million yen previously donated, in order to support devastated area recovery.
