Nissan cuts production for 7 days in Mexico due to weak U.S. demand

Nissan is temporarily slowing down production in its Mexico plan due to weak demand in the U.S. Nissan’s Aguascalientes factory, known for producing the Sentra and Versa models for export to the U.S., is scheduled to stay stopped for a total of seven days this month.

“Due to current demand in the U.S. market… Nissan Mexico is adjusting production at the plant in Aguascalientes,” the company said in an e-mail to Reuters.

The automaker did not mention how many cars it will produce as a result of the slow production. In 2007, the Mexico plant built around 26,000 cars per month. Mexico’s automobile industry is expected to take hit this year as U.S., its number one export market, heads into tough economical times.
