Asia Bizz: Japan’s Nissan Motors is all set to return at the Detroit Motor Show in the US, which will be held in the year 2012, after being away for almost three years. The announcement of Nissan’s return was made by the company’s chairman for America, before the commencement of the North American International Auto Show. Chairman Tavares said this decision by the company to come back in the US market is a step to expand its business and current vehicle line-up.
Nissan is looking ahead of giving strong competition Honda Motors, who is no.2 after Toyota in Japan. The company is trying to make its presence in North America too, because Toyota and Honda have made their business concrete in US and Canada.
Nissan will debut the market with a commercial van for the American market, which is of course dominated by GM and Ford. Nissan already launched its Juke and electric vehicle Leaf, and expects electric cars to constitute almost 10% of its overseas exports by the year 2020.
