Nissan U.S. Sales Increase 14.2% for October Record

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan U.S. sales in October increased 14.2 percent to 91,018, up from last year’s total of 79,865. Nissan Division sales also set an October record with 81,866 deliveries, a 15.4 percent increase over the prior year. Sales of Infiniti vehicles totaled 9,152 units, up 4.5 percent.

Fred Diaz, divisional vice president, Sales and Marketing and Service and Parts, Nissan U.S.A. said: "Nissan’s record October performance demonstrates that a Washington shutdown was not enough to shut down our sales momentum. With the all-new 2014 Rogue hitting dealer showrooms this month, we expect Nissan’s growth to continue to accelerate.”

NISSAN HIGHLIGHTS

  • Nissan division posted sales of 81,866 units, an October record representing a gain of 15.4 percent from 70,928 deliveries the prior year.
  • Sales of Rogue crossovers set an October record at 12,919 units, up 53.1 percent, as Nissan prepares to launch the all-new 2014 Rogue later this month.
  • Pathfinder sales in October jumped 90.4 percent to 5,793. Deliveries are up 182.7 percent calendar-year-to-date over the same period in 2012.
  • Nissan LEAF sales also set an October record at 2,002, an increase of 26.8 percent over last year’s strong performance. LEAF deliveries are up 166.2 percent in 2013
  • Frontier sales jumped 71.8 percent in October to 5,242 units, thanks in part to the popularity and increased availability of fuel-efficient 4-cylinder models.

INFINITI HIGHLIGHTS

  • Infiniti today reported sales of 9,152 in October, up 4.5 percent from 8,757 units a year earlier.
  • The all-new Infiniti Q50 saw sales of 2,556 units in October, and with two full months of sales, the luxury sports sedan has had 7,357 total deliveries.
  • The Infiniti QX60 7-passenger luxury crossover also had another strong month in October with sales of 2,176 an increase of 4.4 percent. Later this month, the new 250-horsepower QX60 Hybrid goes on sale, offering V6-like performance and best-in-class combined EPA fuel economy.
