NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Nissan is adding 900 jobs to start making the Rogue crossover SUV at its Tennessee plant.

Today’s announcement is in addition to 800 jobs added at the Smyrna plant last year, and will bring total employment at the suburban Nashville facility to more than 7,000.

Hiring is already underway and Rogue production is scheduled to begin this fall.

Building the Rogue in the United States for the first time is part of the Japanese automaker’s plan to have 85 percent of its domestic sales to be produced in North America.

This month marks the 30th anniversary of Nissan producing vehicles in the U.S. The plant in Smyrna built its first pickup truck in June 1983. The plant also makes Nissan’s most popular car, the midsize Altima sedan, among other models.
