While our favorite Japanese automaker is certainly developing a reputation for building high-quality electric vehicles, like the Nissan LEAF, the company isn't just stopping there. As part of its ongoing campaign to lessen its overall impact on the environment, big changes have been implemented at a manufacturing facility in Aguascalientes, Mexico where several new Nissan models are produced.

Nissan began going green at this Mexican plant back in 2009 when a new program was introduced to begin recycling 100 percent of the byproducts of the manufacturing process. This was in addition to the efficient wastewater treatment plant that the facility has on site. The Nissan factory hasn't contributed a single drop of waste or runoff to the public sewage system in Aguascalientes in nearly 20 years.

Now, Nissan officials are celebrating the introduction of wind turbines to the area. These windmills generate up to 50 percent of all the power needed to operate the plant. This only helps to keep shrinking the carbon footprint of one of the world's largest automakers.

Here at Jim Johnson Nissan we are proud to be the ambassadors of a brand that cares so deeply about the environment. You can take steps to reduce your individual impact on the earth by switching to one of the efficient new Nissan vehicles in our inventory today. Stop by our dealership located at 2200 Scottsville Road Bowling Green, KY 42104 and speak with our staff about our Nissan service and repair department here in Bowling Green.
