    Austin A40 1947-1956

    In 1952, Nissan and Austin, the UK auto manufacturer, agreed on a tie-up and in April of the following year, knockdown production of the A40 Somerset Saloon was started. On April 4, the first vehicle came off the line at the Tsurumi Austin factory and on May 8, a commemorative launch event was held in the city, with guests including the Trade and Industry Minister and the UK Ambassador. From the start of production, domestically produced tires, batteries and flat glass were used.
