MEXICO CITY — Automaker Nissan’s Mexico unit announced Wednesday that it will cease production of the long-running Tsuru model that has been sold in the country since the mid-1980s.
The model is widely prized by taxi drivers in Mexico because of its low cost and ruggedness, but has also been slammed by critics for its lack of safety equipment and poor crash test results.
Nissan said it will end production in May, including a special limited-edition “commemorative” version of a 1,000 models. Nissan did not give a reason for the decision.
