Nissan Motor is set to issue a recall of 1.21 million vehicles in Japan, as some of them had been produced without proper safety inspections.

INTERNATIONAL - Nissan Motor is set to issue a recall of 1.21 million vehicles in Japan, as some of them had been produced without proper safety inspections, the carmaker said yesterday. 

Japan’s second-largest carmaker will re-inspect the 1.21 million units manufactured between October 2014 and September 2017, it said in a statement. Nissan said on Friday it would not be able to sell some 60000 new vehicles at its plants and dealers in Japan as unqualified personnel carried out safety inspections. 

The carmaker said the issue was brought to its attention following an on-site probe by the government in September.
