Following Toyota’s move to produce more Camrys at its Princeton, Indiana plant, Nissan will shift workers at its Canton, Mississippi car and truck plant to build more Altima sedans and fewer large trucks.
Nissan Altima sales were up 43.6 percent in May to 34,428 units while Titan sales fell 55.8 percent to 2,163 units and Armada SUV sales fell 52.1 percent to 1,212.
The shift to produce more Altima cars will result in about 2,000 more cars a month.
Nissan’s Smyrna, Tennessee plant that produces Altima sedans, coupe and hybrids will not see an alteration in the assembly line due to the launch of the Nissan Maxima.
