Nissan Terra goes on sale this spring, first in China, with other Asian markets soon to

ambitious midterm plan and growing product lineup, we’re confident that this growth
will continue. It is an exciting time for Nissan. We have the Nissan Terra arriving

drivers are purchasing our LCVs around the world.”
