A few months back, Nissan was found to be among five car companies who violated the terms of China's hybrid car development program in order to get government funding.
The amount misappropriated totaled to roughly 1 billion yuan. Nissan did not release any comment.
A couple of years ago, 17 dealers of Dongfeng Nissan was fined a total of 19.1 million yuan by China after it was discovered to have made price fixing agreements with its dealers.
Dongfeng Nissan said on its Weibo microblog that it accepts the fine and has determined a series of corrective measures.
The fine is part of a government crackdown on what it has called anti-trust behavior by foreign automakers and dealers that targeted firms like Audi AG, Daimler AG's Mercedes-Benz and Toyota Motor Corp.
