In 2000, the first produced NIMR vehicle was described as a multipurpose vehicle intended to address the requirements for replacement of existing 4×4 light tactical vehicles, primarily in the Middle East and Asia.
In 2011 construction began on a new factory within the Tawazun Industrial Park in Abu Dhabi, including facilities for all research and development, production, and marketing of the NIMR. A secondary metal fabrication plant was set up in Al Ain, in the United Arab Emirates.
In July 2012 it was disclosed that Algeria and the United Arab Emirates had signed an agreement to jointly produce NIMR armoured vehicles in Algeria. Under the CKD agreement between the Algerian Ministry of Defence's Mechanical Industry Promotion Group and Tawazun Holdings of the UAE, the NIMR-Algerie Joint Stock Company was established to produce 4x4 armoured station wagon variants
In June 2014 NIMR Automotive held a ground-breaking ceremony for its new integrated facility for production of NIMR vehicles at the Tawazun Industrial Park in Abu Dhabi. The facility, which will have a built up area of 37,500 square meters in addition to a test track and service centre, was scheduled to be fully operational by December 2015.
