Nissan 2023 Strategy Unveiled: 12 New Models in the Next 18 Months

Nissan hopes to return to profitability by 2023

  • New Nissan plan aims to reduce production by 20 %

  • 12 new Nissan models coming in the next 18 months

Nissan unveiled a four-year plan yesterday that aims to bring the company back to profitability by 2023. The new strategy involves lowering global production by 20%, introducing 12 new models in the next 18 months, and focusing production and assets on the brand’s most important models.

If successful, Nissan’s new strategy will generate a 5% operating margin and a 6% global market share by 2023.

“Our transformation plan aims to ensure steady growth instead of excessive sales expansion. We will now concentrate on our core competencies and enhancing the quality of our business, while maintaining financial discipline and focusing on net revenue per unit to achieve profitability. This coincides with the restoration of a culture defined by “Nissan-ness” for a new era”, Nissan’s CEO Makoto Uchida said in a press release.

The plan focuses on two elements: prioritizing core markets and restructuring to reduce costs.
