It employs over 1,400 local employees which oversee the entire manufacturing process from start to finish, ensuring the toughness, quality and durability of each vehicle.
Once complete, the Navara is then exported throughout the world in 105 different destinations, which includes the United Kingdom and the United States. The output of the Nissan Navara plant accounts for 57.6% of exports from Thailand, which contributes to Nissan’s growing regional manufacturing footprint.
