Nissan Group today announced total U.S. sales for July 2016 of 132,475 units, an increase of 1 percent over the prior year, setting a July record.

With the Nissan brand showing just a slight increase on the same time last year, it remains to Infiniti to increase sales for the combined company. 

However Infiniti has failed to see this increase, with a -4.7% drop on the same time last year, it has to be mentioned that the all-new QX30, which will solely be built in the United Kingdom, should go some way to turning the premium brands sales around, and they need to be turned around now, as the limited scope of Infiniti does not allow many months of decreases.
Nissan highlights:
  • Nissan Division finished July with 122,530 sales, up 2 percent, setting a July record.
  • Sales of the Nissan Versa increased 19 percent to 11,856.
  • Nissan Maxima sales climbed to 5,990, up 44 percent.
  • Overall sales of Nissan crossovers, trucks and SUVs set a July record, up 16 percent.
  • Sales of the Rogue crossover set a best month ever record with sales 33,298, up 33 percent.
  • Sales of the Murano crossover increased 15 percent to 6,271.
  • Sales of the Frontier pickup truck increased 73% to 7,244.
NOTE: To ensure consistency in global sales reporting, Nissan North America calculates monthly variances on a straight-percentage basis, unadjusted for the number of selling days.  July 2016 had 26 selling days, the same number of selling days as July 2015.
