The first production model of the all-new 2009 Nissan Maxima rolled off the assembly line at Nissan North America's Smyrna, Tenn., manufacturing plant on May 27, 2008, signaling the return of Nissan's flagship to its roots as a 4-door sports car.

Sporting a bold new look, as well as a more powerful V6 under the hood, the "Job 1" 2009 Maxima was driven off the assembly line during a midday celebration attended by Nissan employees and executives.

"The Maxima is an important car for Smyrna and for Nissan," said Greg Daniels, senior vice president, U.S. Manufacturing, Nissan North America. "It's our responsibility to build a high quality vehicle each and every time. Our customers deserve it and expect no less."

Changes were made in three key areas of the seventh generation Maxima. The exterior took on a more aggressive look that imparts a strong, premium presence. A "super" cockpit feel was integrated creating an interior that combines a driver orientation with high quality, roominess and user-friendly technology.

"We set out to create one of the best performing front engine, front-wheel drive sedans in the world," said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan division, Nissan North America. "The Maxima delivers on all levels offering the value, quality, and exhilarating performance consumers have come to expect from Nissan."

In calendar year 2007, Nissan North America sold 52,574 Maximas. The vehicles are also exported to Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Guam, and Saipan. In fiscal year 2008, Nissan will export approximately 3,600 Maximas.
