In November, Nissan opened the first stage of a US$2-billion (€1.5-billion) manufacturing complex in Aguascalientes. Mexico is already an important market for Daimler. The new facility will have installed capacity of 250,000 units per year once full ramp-up is achieved. Nissan, Daimler and Ford are also working on the development of a joint fuel cell stack and system to accelerate the market-readiness of fuel-cell electric vehicles by the end of the decade.
