"..Nissan will add 1,300 workers specifically for the battery packs and for the Leafs, which will start being builtin the U.S. later this year. The Japanese automaker has invested $1.7 billion upgrading the plant, which will include a 1.3-million-square-foot facility dedicated to making battery packs. In all, Nissan will employ about 6,000 at the factory by early next year.(2013)..."

Tennessee Leaders:From January to October sales increased 11% to 946,169 units and the North America ( has capacity to build 950,000,000 + Extra Capacity from 1.4 Billion Tax Dollars..)
Technically NISSAN ALREADY Has the Capacity in the USA to Build ALL the Cars They Sell in the USA Here
The fact is they want to build the cars in MEXICO to "save money" if NISSAN Does NOT Pay back the Dept. of Energy loan then they should NOT be able to sell Import from Mexico. Bill Krueger says that Mexico is part of North America and "includes" Mexico when saying cars build in the US will be 85% from North America.HELLO "if" NISSAN used all the capacity they built (with BOND money - they are about 6 BILLION in IDB Bond Debt) then jobs would be created...
"Nissan's Mexican production includes the March, Sentra, Versa, Tiida, the historically popular Tsuru, as well as the NP300 light trucks. Seventy percent of production is exported to 100 international markets. .." NISSAN Press ReleaseNISSAN has significant unused capacity at both Smyrna and Canton so WHY is Ghosn looking at spending 2 Billion on a NEW plant in Mexico one that would employ 10,000 workers in MEXICO for cars to be sold in USA. The IDB stuff is BIG. So NOW people are speculating that Ghosn is setting up for a NISSAN North America Bankruptcy.
Ghosn sees a lack of local capacity as a major inhibitor of sales growth, and is hopeful that when Nissan’s Brazilian factory comes online in 2014, more capacity from their Mexican plant can be diverted to North America. Nissan is targeting 10 percent market share in the United States by 2017, and the timing of this achievement should be the impetus for the new plant.

"We can be very proud of our ability to compete in an industry where every day we fight for sales."

It's Pathetic."....Nissan will invest more than $20 million in addition to hiring the workers. Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said the state will provide $7.5 million in cash to pay for worker training and infrastructure. "Nissan's trust in Mississippi's workforce is evident, and I am proud that this company is creating 1,000 additional jobs for hard-working Mississippians," Republican Bryant said in a statement. The company says it has invested more than $2 billion at the Canton plant, which opened in 2003. The state has provided more than $378 million in aid and incentives....."
