Nissan India sales up 21% to 3,711 units in December

Together, their sales growth was the second-fastest among car brands in India for April-December 2016 versus the same period last year, it added.

Nissan Motor India on Sunday reported a 21 per cent jump in domestic sales at 3,711 units in December, against 3,065 units in the same month a year ago. Moreover, for the first three quarters of the current fiscal, Nissan and Datsun’s combined sales achieved an impressive 50 per cent growth rate, the company said in a statement.

Together, their sales growth was the second-fastest among car brands in India for April-December 2016 versus the same period last year, it added.

Commenting on the sales results, Nissan Motor India MD Arun Malhotra said, “Nissan India achieved healthy sales in December by posting 21 per cent year-on-year growth despite the challenges of the demonetisation issue. This strong performance came on the back of continued success of Datsun redi-GO and the great customer response to the redi-GO SPORT.”

“We have achieved consistently strong sales in the first three quarters of this fiscal year. The growth we have achieved from April through December positions us as the second-fastest growing company in the passenger vehicle segment in India, a significant feat for a comparatively young company,” added Malhotra.

In October 2016, the Nissan Motor India group, which manages the sales and service support for both Nissan and Datsun brands, announced the intention to introduce up to eight new cars from the Datsun and Nissan brands to India by 2021.

These new products in the pipeline, which include the recently-launched Nissan GT-R and the launch of X-Trail Hybrid in 2017, move the company forward toward its aim of becoming a major force in India with a 5 per cent market share by 2020.
