Nissan Motor Co  is looking into whether it would need to halt production in the United States due to a delay in supplies from Hitachi Ltd that will disrupt some production in Japan for three days, a top executive said.

We're working around the clock to try and minimize any inconvenience to our customers, Chief Operating Officer Toshiyuki Shiga said at the launch of the fourth-generation March in Japan on Tuesday.

For now, we're still gauging when and whether we would need to halt production in the United States.

Nissan said on Monday it would halt production partially in Japan for three days starting Wednesday after Hitachi said delivery of engine control units were running behind schedule.
