Japan's Nidec to expand EV motor output outside China
Reuters | 2018/12/21

Nidec. Corp will add locations outside China to build motors for electric vehicles as the Japanese motor maker rethinks its supply strategy, the   Nikkei   business daily reported.

Because of U.S.-China trade tensions, Nidec has started shipping a number of its home electronics and auto parts from Mexico instead of China, the company's COO, Hiroyuki Yoshimoto, told the  Nikkei   on Wednesday.

The Kyoto-based manufacturer said it now plans to expand production of traction motor system to Poland and Mexico, on top of its under-construction Chinese factory,   Nikkei  reported.

Nidec said it will target 100 billion yen in sales of these motors in fiscal 2022 and plans to double it to 200 billion yen by fiscal 2025.
