Nissan Group today announced total U.S. sales for April 2017 of 121,998 units, a decrease of 1.5 percent over the prior year, with Infiniti taking a small increase, it is not enough to make up for the losses at Nissan, albeit just around 2,000 lost sales, there are a few jewles amongst the brands that did help to keep the sales from loosing further ground.
