Export figures have been updated.

 

YOKOHAMA, Japan (January 30, 2017) – Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today announced its production, sales and export figures for December 2016 and calendar year 2016.

"This was a record year for global sales and production," said Executive Vice President Daniele Schillaci, global head of marketing and sales. "Growth was led by robust demand for models such as the Rogue and Maxima in the U.S., and the Qashqai and Lannia in China."

"In 2017, we will continue to benefit from an influx of new products in key regions. In Japan, sales of the new Note and Serena will help us maintain the momentum we’ve seen over the last few months. In Europe, initial responses to the new Micra compact car have been overwhelmingly positive, and in the U.S., we will reinforce our offerings in the crossover segment with the launch of the Rogue Sport this spring."
