Mizushima Plant Information

At the Mizushima Plant, we manufacture light motor vehicles and cars with excellent environmental performance that run on 100% electric power.
This is one of the few integrated production plants in the world that contains an engine assembly plant and a casting plant, where the entire car manufacturing process is carried out from the press shop to the final assembly plant.
Electric and gasoline-powered vehicles are produced on the same mixed production line based on a planned sequence that takes various conditions into account to determine the order in which they are manufactured.

Furthermore, all components made at this plant, including engines, undercarriage parts, and complete vehicles, are manufactured at a single central location. Logistics are one of the strengths of this plant, as it neighbors the Mizushima Port through which large car carrier ships can enter.
At the plant tour, you can watch a steel plate be shaped into a car from up close.
