Nissan begins mass production of new pickup in China

Looser regulations send truck market into overdrive

Zhengzhou Nissan began production Monday on its Navara pickup truck.

ZHENGZHOU, China -- Nissan Motor's manufacturing joint venture Zhengzhou Nissan Automobile began production of its new Navara pickup truck Monday, anticipating a boom for such vehicles in the Chinese market.

China eased regulations on pickups in 2016, sparking the first double-digit growth in six years. Sales competition likely will intensify as big independent Chinese brands and U.S. automakers bolster their efforts as well.
