Nissan is "determined" to provide dealers with a 30- to 45-day supply of vehicles for most models, Nissan Americas Chairperson Jeremie Papin said Wednesday.
The supply would be dependent on segment and battery level, he said, and some market segments might need a bit more inventory to provide a diverse offering, he said.
But Nissan wanted to compete with other manufacturers, not within its own network, Papin said.
"There is no intention ... to go back to where we were in the past," Papin told the American Financial Services Association Vehicle Finance Conference in Dallas.
Papin called his automaker "fully aligned" with dealerships on inventory.
"We don't push vehicles on them," Papin said. "They need to pull us."
He said Nissan shared production schedules with dealerships two months in advance so they knew exactly what they would receive.
Papin said Nissan had seen progress resolving supply issues hindering its production.
Two years ago, "80-plus" components were an issue for the automaker to source. Now, the number is more like "one or two." Which part or parts were scarce might change, but "it's never more" than that small number, he said.
