FRANKLIN, TN--Nov. 1, 2012:  Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) today reported October U.S. sales of 79,685 units versus 82,346 units a year earlier, down 3.2 percent.  Nissan Division sales decreased 6.0 percent for the month at 70,928 units. Sales of Infiniti vehicles were up 27.6 percent over the prior year, to 8,757 units.

NISSAN HIGHLIGHTS

  • Nissan Division posted sales of 70,928 units, down 6.0 percent from last October's 75,484 units.
  • Sales of the all-new, 2013 Altima increased 12.8 percent to 24,623 units. The all-new Altima debuted this summer. Calendar year-to-date Altima sales now stand up 16.3 percent year-over year.
  • The Nissan LEAF all-electric vehicle recorded strong sales of 1,579 units in October, up 86 percent from the prior year.
  • Sales of the Pathfinder SUV rose 46.9 percent over the prior year, with sales of 3,043 units. The next-generation Pathfinder will debut later this month.

"Unfortunately, October ended on a down note with Hurricane Sandy causing major disruption throughout the Northeast, which is our strongest performing region with more than 225 area dealers. To lend a helping hand to those affected, Nissan is offering both employee discounts and employee financing to eligible residents in FEMA disaster areas," said Al Castignetti, vice president, Nissan Division. More information on the program is available at www.insidenissan.com.

INFINITI HIGHLIGHTS

  • Infiniti today reported sales of 8,757 units for October, an increase of 27.6 percent from 6,862 units a year earlier.
  • With 1,467 deliveries, the Infiniti QX was up 17.9 percent, making it the best October in history for the full-size luxury SUV.
  • The Infiniti FX line, now available with a new 325-horsepower, 3.7-liter V6 engine, was up 18.5 percent to 783 units.
  • Infiniti's all-new JX 7-passenger luxury crossover continued its successful launch with 2,084 units sold.
  • The 2013 Infiniti M line, supported by newly available all-wheel drive sport packages for both the M37 and M56 models, had sales of 738, up 11.1 percent in October.
  • Overall, with its luxury crossovers and SUVs showing sales increases of 93 percent in October, Infiniti was up 27.6 percent in October, its sixth straight month of double-digit sales increases.

Infiniti also announced today it will offer employee pricing and special financing with deferred payments to people in the designated FEMA disaster area who lost vehicles to Hurricane Sandy. "We hope Infiniti's special pricing and financing programs help people affected by this devastating storm to resume their normal lives," said Ben Poore, vice president, Infiniti Americas.

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. October had 26 selling days both in 2012 and 2011.
