Nissan announces Production, Sales and export figures for June and the first half of the year.

Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today announced its production, sales and export figures for June 2016 and the first half of 2016 (January-June).
"Our strong start to 2016 is continuing, with global sales and production both reaching all-time highs for the January-June period," said executive vice president Daniele Schillaci, global head of marketing and sales. "We are seeing consistently higher demand for core models, such as the Rogue and Sentra in the U.S., the NP300 Frontier in Mexico, and the Qashqai in China.
"To carry this momentum into the second half, we will continue our product offensive with the launch of new products and new technologies over the coming months.

"In Japan, the debut of our ProPILOT autonomous driving technology and the launch of a model featuring our new e-Power series hybrid system will showcase our ability to bring groundbreaking technologies to market. Meanwhile, August will see the first deliveries of the Kicks, our all-new global compact crossover, at dealerships in Brazil.
"Our INFINITI brand lineup will be strengthened by the arrival of the QX30 premium active crossover, the newly upgraded Q50 sports sedan and the all-new Q60 premium sports coupe. Likewise, the Datsun brand continues its expansion with the launch of the Redi-GO in India in June, and the start of sales in the Middle East earlier this month."
