Nissan U.S. Sales Increase 10.9% For Record July

  • Third consecutive record month for total sales; Fifth for Nissan Division
  • Nissan Division sales increase 16.8% led by record sales of core models

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan set a new July record with U.S. sales of 109,041 deliveries, an increase of 10.9 percent over 98,341 units a year earlier. Nissan Division also set a new July record with 101,279 sales, up 16.8 percent and led by record July performances by Altima, Versa, Pathfinder and Rogue. Sales of Infiniti vehicles in July totaled 7,762, as the brand prepares for the launch of the all-new Infiniti Q50 sports sedan.

NISSAN HIGHLIGHTS

  • Nissan Division posted 101,279 sales, a July record and up 16.8 percent from last July's 86,722 units. July marks Nissan's fifth consecutive monthly sales record.
  • Nissan Altima deliveries also set a July record, increasing 11 percent to 29,534 units.
  • Pathfinder SUV sales jumped 235.1 percent to 8,428 units, marking the best July ever for the model.
  • Versa sales set a July record at 9,007 units, up 20.9 percent, buoyed by the launch of the all-new 2014 Versa Note hatchback.
  • Rogue sales also set a new July record at 16,992 units, up 28.8 percent. An all-new Rogue will launch later in 2013, with production moving to Nissan's Smyrna, Tenn., assembly plant.
  • Sales of Nissan LEAF in June were 1,864 units, up 371.9 percent and setting a new July record. Since the launch of the Smyrna, Tenn.-built, 2013 LEAF in March, sales are up 335.3 percent.

Fred Diaz, divisional vice president, Nissan Sales& Marketing, Service& Parts, said: "With the launch of the all-new Versa Note, Nissan has now refreshed four of our top-five selling models in just more than a year. These all-new models are delivering new monthly highs and providing momentum for the upcoming launch of the all-new Rogue."

Only 1168 Titans sold in the whole month? :yikes: That is less than Leaf sales for the month.

I can't believe switching from full frame RWD to unibody CUV almost tripled Pathfinder sales. I also can't believe they managed to sell almost 17K Rogue's. I wonder how much of that is fleet?

      Does Ford see the upcoming Ranger as a threat to the sales of the F-150? Joe Hinrichs, Ford's president of global operations says no.
      "There always will be some substitution, but this is more of a lifestyle vehicle for people who want to use it for different purposes. The F-150's gotten bigger over time and more expensive. We believe there's room now to slot the Ranger in very nicely in the showroom," he told Automotive yesterday at an event kicking off production of the Ranger.
      The new Ranger is quite expensive with the base XL SuperCab 2WD setting you back $25,395 with destination - higher than the Nissan Frontier ($19,965), Chevrolet Colorado ($21,495), and Toyota Tacoma ($24,480). But the biggest competitor to the Ranger might be the F-150. Despite a higher price ($29,650 for the XL Regular Cab 2WD), Ford is offering a number of incentives that can bring down the price of F-150 into Ranger territory. 
      But there is some good news for the Ranger, as interest in midsize trucks is rising. Automotive News reports that interest was increased 18 percent so far this year, a massive increase compared to the less than 1 percent in 2017.

      Nissan will be using next month's LA Auto Show to unveil an updated version of their flagship Maxima sedan.
      At first glance, you might be wondering if there any changes - looks the same as the old one. But take a closer look and you notice the new headlights with certain models getting full-LED versions. The V-shaped grille looks be slightly larger and wider, and there are new small intake grilles.
      Nissan will also be offering their Safety Shield 360 suite of active safety features that include front and rear automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams.
      Nissan says the Maxima will go sale in December.
      There's still a lot of things up in the air, such if there are any changes coming to the interior and powertrain. We'll have more details in a month's time.

      According to Cars Direct who got access to the ordering guide, Nissan dealers can now order up the Nissan Leaf with the 60 kWh battery pack. The long range EV go into production in January 2019 with Spring 2019 delivery. It now appears that the Leaf will hit the same price as the Chevy Bolt with the top of the line Leaf SL costing $42,500 compared to the fully loaded Bolt at $41,780. Differences is that the Leaf has a 225 mile EPA range where the Bolt is certified at 238 miles. 
      According to Push EV who says they got their hands on slides and other information on the 60 kWh battery will come with a 160 kW motor replacing the 110 kW motor that comes with the 40 kWh battery. Nissan also has added 100 kW DC fast charging along with 11-22 kW internal charger power. Both of these are upgraded from the current 6,6 kW internal charger power and 50 kW DC fast charging for the 40 kW battery EV. The last piece of info is that Nissan with the new battery pack drops their lack of thermal mgmt. based on using air for a liquid thermal mgmt. system on the new battery pack which is supplied by LG Chemical rather than AESC the provider of the 40 kW battery pack which was owned by Nissan and sold summer 2018 to LG Chem.
      Either way there is now 2 alternatives to a Tesla 3 and Nissan and Chevrolet still has their Federal rebate where Tesla is out it seems as of the end of October.
      The next question for Nissan that fans have been asking is when is the Nismo version going on sale now that they have their new 60 kWh battery?
