TOKYO (Reuters) - Nissan Motor Co <7201.T> said on Thursday it was recalling nearly 320,000 vehicles in Japan to fix defective coating in an electronic power unit that could cause a short circuit and fire in the worst-case scenario.

The recall covers six models including the Serena minivan as well as minivans and vans manufactured for Suzuki Motor Corp <7269.T> and Mitsubishi Motors Corp <7211.T> produced between February 2010 and September 2014.

There were eight reports of fires from the defect, a filing with the transport ministry showed.

The recall does not affect vehicles sold outside Japan, a Nissan spokesman said.
