Nissan has opened a new design studio in San-Yi, Taiwan. The Yulon Nissan Design Center (YNDC) employs 40 designers from Taiwan and around the world.

YNDC joins sister studios in Japan (Atsugi and Harajuku), the United States of America (San Diego and Detroit) and United Kingdom (London).

Combined, these design studios are charged with working cooperatively and competitively to create next-generation and all-new vehicle designs. YNDC will add value to the international design group through its unique design vision.

Yulon Asia Design Center, which is the predecessor of YNDC, worked on the redesign of several Nissan products especially for Taiwan and China markets, including X-TRAIL, Bluebird, Cefiro, Verita, March and Serena.

To reinforce its function, it is now equipped with an advanced digital modeling system and other state-of-the-art design equipment and technology.

The designers will work in six functional groups, including Exterior Design, Interior Design, Digital Design, Clay Modeling, Color Design and Design Research & Management.
