Purpose

I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Nissan Group today announced total U.S. sales for October 2016 of 113,520 units, a decrease of 2.2 percent from the prior year, Infiniti has produced growth in the month but only just, where as Nissan has dropped sales by 2.5%, even with new models, upgraded models and specials, they have still struggled to keep the sales at a level equal to last years.
The SUV range produced big growth on the month with Murano posting a record sales month 100% up, followed by Frontier, Armada and Pathfinder all posting significant gains, which leads us to believe that the sedan market has collapsed, November will be interesting to view to see if this continues.
Nissan highlights:
  • Nissan Division finished October with 102,312 sales.
  • Overall sales of Nissan crossovers, trucks and SUVs rose 12.7 percent, setting an October record.
  • Murano crossover sales also set an October record, increasing 100 percent to 10,701.
  • Frontier sales in October increased 33.6 percent to 6,364.
  • Pathfinder SUV sales increased 15 percent to 6,421.
  • Armada full-size SUV sales gained 79.4 percent to 1,740.
