Nissan India December 2016 sales up 21 percent

Nissan Motor India has reported domestic sales of 3,711 units in December 2016, a 21 percent year-on-year increase (December 2015: 3,065).

The carmaker has also reported that for the first three-quarters of the fiscal year 2016, combined Nissan and Datsun sales have registered 50 percent YoY growth.

Commenting on the sales results, Arun Malhotra, MD, Nissan Motor India, said, “Nissan India achieved healthy sales in December by posting 21 percent year-on-year growth despite the challenges of the demonetisation issue. This strong performance came on the back of the continued success of the Datsun Redigo and the great customer response to the Redigo Sport. We have achieved consistently strong sales in the first three-quarters of this fiscal year. The growth we’ve 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 the Nissan and Datsun brands, announced plans to introduce up to eight new cars from the two brands to India by 2021. These new products include the recently-launched Nissan GT-R and the launch of X-Trail Hybrid in 2017.
