Vehicle production at Nissan’s plant in Sunderland has resumed after a break of almost three months.

Manufacturing was halted in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but after a raft of new safety measures designed to prevent the spread of the virus production has recommenced with a new Nissan Juke the first car off the line.

Safety measures include separation between operators, one way systems, rescheduled breaks to support social distancing, and improved PPE.

New health and safety measures have also been introduced across Nissan’s dealer network, helping the manufacturer to fully open more than 95% of its showrooms across Europe.
