Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. will hold an 80th Anniversary Heritage Car Parade in Yokohama on December 23 to commemorate the establishment of the company 80 years ago and express its appreciation to customers. The parade event will take place at the Nissan Global Headquarters Gallery in Yokohama and the surrounding area.
Nissan was founded as Jidosha Seizo Co., Ltd. on December 26, 1933. In June 1934, the company changed its name to the current Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.
The heritage car parade will be held just days before the 80th anniversary of the company’s founding. A line of heritage vehicles will take to the streets of Yokohama to show appreciation for the long-time patronage of Nissan’s valued customers.
Approximately 100 Nissan models from different eras, including heritage cars brought in and driven by customers, will travel about 10 kilometers throughout the city of Yokohama, where the company was founded, and where its global headquarters is currently located.
A commemorative event for the 80th anniversary will also be held in the Nissan Global Headquarters Gallery.
