SMYRNA, Tenn. (AP) — Nissan is shuffling some North American auto production as it ramps up to make the electric LEAF sedan at its Smyrna plant. The company announced Wednesday that it will move manufacturing of the Xterra sport utility vehicle and Frontier pickup truck from Smyrna to its plant in Canton, Miss. That will create extra capacity at the Smyrna auto assembly plant to make the new Infiniti JX luxury crossover, the Nissan LEAF and the next-generation Nissan Rogue.
