Nissan Motor Company has announced sales and production for the first six months of its fiscal year.

Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today announced its production, sales and export figures for September and the six months from April to September 2016.
"We have continued to grow throughout the first half of the fiscal year, resulting in record sales and production over the period," said executive vice president Daniele Schillaci, global head of marketing and sales. 
"This growth has been supported by demand for core models in some of our largest markets, such as the Rogue in the U.S., the Versa and NP300 Frontier in Mexico, and the Qashqai and Sylphy in China.
"In the last few months alone, we launched our ProPILOT single-lane autonomous drive technology on the Serena minivan in Japan, we unveiled the revolutionary new Micra at the Paris Motor Show, and we started production of the redesigned Note in Japan, featuring our e-Power technology. We are confident that this ongoing influx of new products and technologies will continue to set the stage for further growth."
