“The amount of new product serves as the direction for the world’s economic future,” Tavares said. “This, in addition to the unique audiences this show gathers, makes Nissan proud to say it will be returning to NAIAS as an exhibitor in 2012. It is an excellent forum for us to place a spotlight on products that will be carrying us all into the future.”

Nissan’s luxury brand Infiniti also skipped the Detroit Auto Show for the past three years. Other automakers including Porsche, Mitsubishi and Suzuki have also been absent. Porsche will be coming back this year for the first time since 2007.
