Nissan announced Tuesday it will open a Nissan dealership in Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee.
The announcement came on the heels of a $50 million investment in Nissan North America by the Nissan Foundation.
The investment comes as Nissan looks to build a presence in Georgia with the goal of making the state more attractive to Nissan-owned vehicles.
The Georgia Nissan dealership will be located at the Nissan dealership, 4605 N. Main St., in Athens.
The Tennessee Nissan dealership is slated to open in late 2019.
