Nissan and NEC operates a battery manufacturing plant at Smyrna for the Leaf, but decided to sell its battery plant to GSR Capital in July 2017.[5] However, this sale did not actually happen and after three delays was canceled in July 2018 as GSR Capital did not pay on time.[6]

The Leaf2 is to be built at Smyrna, among other factories.[7]
