    End of the Nissan Tsuru in Mexico.

    The Nissan Tsuru, who was sold as the 1991-94 Sentra here, will be on its last year in Mexico due to the cost of updating it to modern safety standards.
    The article is in Spanish, I don't know if there's an English article about it yet.

    Nissan could suspend production of Tsuru for breach of safety rules By Hilda Hermosillo | 07/25/2016 SHARE TWEET SHARE SHARE 0 COMMENTS


    The union of the automaker predicts that will model the Mexican market in 2017
    The low cost of production does not generate Tsuru useful to auto parts suppliers


    Due to the issuance of the new Mexican Official Standard (NOM) 194, Nissan Mexicana could suspend production Tsuru next year since the vehicle does not meet the safety requirements contained in the system, such as airbags and ABS brakes, He revealed Rogelio Padilla de León, secretary general of the Union of Automotive and Metalworking Industry.

    In order to maintain production, the Japanese firm would have to comply with safety guidelines contained in the official standard, however, experts believe that the vehicle structure difficult to incorporate "but anything is possible, study and production costs see if it is profitable. "

    The Tsuru model, manufactured in the state of Cuernavaca, is one of the best selling company in Mexico, along with the Tiida, Sentra and March competing in popularity: "More than ten years ago managers said they were to take the market and it has not happened (...) because it is a battle vehicle that has much acceptance among people ".

    However, the union leader acknowledged that the low cost of production of Tsuru not generate useful to auto parts suppliers, making it unaffordable for companies engaged in production, but as the manufacture of the components is tendered in package not choice but to comply.

    Marquez Padilla said the decision on a possible suspension, or leaving the Mexican market, should be taken at the corporate level no later than next year.

    How will affect your market exit the company?

    I think it does affect because it is an important production, but we think the Tsuru be replaced by other low-cost vehicle that also has a lot of acceptance, which in this case is the Tiida.

    How much cost the two?

    I do not know say precisely, but the most austere Tiida barely exceeds 30 thousand pesos to Tsuru. The Tsuru costs between 110 and 140 thousand pesos.

    NOM 194, published in the Official Gazette on May 9, granted within four and a half years to comply with the required regulations to the automotive industry.

    Latin NCAP organization called the Nissan Tsuru as the most unsafe car model, according to the Program for New Car Assessment America and the Caribbean; The study shows that this vehicle is involved in two thousand and eleven car accidents in Mexico between 2007 and 2012, in which more than four thousand people died.

    In another vein, the secretary general of the Union of Automotive Industry & Metalworking reported that production at the seventh month running according to plan; the expectation of the company is assembling a million cars in plants across the country starting next fiscal year, "last year were more than 860 thousand units."

    About 28 percent of production sold in the domestic market, the rest is exported. The models most in demand in the country are the sedan such as Sentra type: "however much luxury vehicle that is not produced here but in plants in the United States or other parts of the world that circulates in the state and in the country".

    They can't.

    Mexican Government is cracking down on them for not having basic safety features (no airbags or ABS).

    Older than that. It first started production in 1984. It's three years older than I am.
