Nissan has told union leaders at its plant in Barcelona, Spain, that they will be informed about the factory's future before summer.
Nissan intends to close the plant as part of plans to reduce its global production capacity by 20 percent, the Nikkei newspaper reported on Thursday.
A Nissan Spain spokesman declined to comment on the report.
"The company does not comment rumors or information about the future of the plant," the spokesman said, adding that Nissan's European chairman had earlier told union leaders at the plant they would be informed about the factory's future before summer.
The factory builds pickups and electric vans. If the factory closes, Nissan would relocate production of the Navara pickup to South Africa, while a replacement for the e-NV200 van would be built at Renault’s plant in Maubeuge, France, according to a report in the Financial Times.
Nissan earlier this month pushed back against reports that it reduce its European presence to focus on the U.S., China, and Japan, relying on its two best-selling SUVs, the Qashqai and Juke, in the region.
