Nissan has released official sales and production data for 2016 and there’s plenty of good news for the Japanese car company.
Nissan lifted production by a healthy 7.5% last year with more than 5.56 million Nissan cars built globally in 2016.
That result marks the seventh consecutive year of production increases and marks a calendar-year record.
Those extra cars produced to meet the extra demand for Nissan vehicles.
Global sales increased 2.5% on the 2015 result to more than 5,559 million units.
The 2016 Nissan sales result represents the seventh consecutive year of increases for Nissan and a calendar-year record for the company.
“This was a record year for global sales and production,” said Daniele Schillaci, Nissan’s 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.”
Locally, Nissan sales increased by 1.2% to 66,826, while Infiniti Cars delivered 807 vehicles to Australian customers – a number up 40.6% on the luxury brand’s 2015 result.
