Nismo is currently a fairly small operation with just 15,000 vehicles a year hitting the road around the world.
Nissan is getting serious about improving its model range’s performance credentials, and the newly announced Nismo Cars Business Department means that enthusiasts may see an increased availability of sporty vehicles from the firm soon.
“With the combined expertise of Nissan group companies, NISMO road cars will make customers enjoy Nissan cars more than ever.” Takao Katagiri, president and CEO of Nissan Motorsports International, said.
According to Nissan, Nismo’s range of performance-tuned models will enter more segments and will be available in more markets soon, including Japan, North America, Europe and the Middle East. The new business strategy “will plan and develop more appealing products in a shorter time,” and the project will boost the output of Nismo-tuned models from the current 15,000 units a year.
