Nissan Design China (NDC) is the newest of Nissan's five worldwide design bases. Nissan's establishment of a design studio in China led the way among Japanese automakers. Beijing is rapidly developing both economically and as a center of design trends. It is from here that NDC creates Nissan's innovative designs. In 2013, in pursuit of an even stronger design development capability, NDC moved to a new location within Beijing and expanded its space significantly.
