Nissan's exports in August decreased 11.5% year-on-year to 44,327 units.

Exports to North America decreased 10.5% year-on-year to 29,592 units.

Exports to Europe decreased mainly because the volume of exports that had been counted as CKD units changed to being counted as parts shipments from Japan for major models destined for Russia (X-Trail, Teana and Murano) in June. These models are being counted as local production models in Russia rather than as models produced in and exported from Japan. From August 2013 onward, these models are counted as locally produced models in Russia.
