Nissan reports 2.4 billion Euro net income for FY2015

Nissan reported sharply increased operating profit and solid revenue growth.

DEAUVILLE, France (Oct. 13, 2015) – The Renault-Nissan Alliance, one of the world’s largest car groups, continues to make progress in its commitment to closing the gender gap. The company launched numerous programs globally and particularly in the “home markets” to recruit, retain and advance women.

On a management pro forma basis, which includes the proportional consolidation of results from Nissan’s joint venture operation in China, net revenue for the period increased to 6.45 trillion yen, up 14.4% year-on-year. Operating profit was up 38.8% versus the same period last year, to 461.6 billion yen, resulting in a 7.2% operating profit margin. Nissan sold 2.62 million vehicles globally during the period, a 1.3% rise year-on-year.

The sales and earnings improvement followed strong growth in North America, particularly for the Altima sedan and Rogue SUV, and encouraging demand in Western Europe for models including the X-Trail and Qashqai. In China, nine-month passenger vehicle unit sales rose by 9.5% to 722,000 units. Despite slower demand in Japan and several emerging markets, the company continued to benefit from robust overall sales of award-winning models derived from the Common Module Family, developed within the Renault-Nissan Alliance.


Nissan also remained the world-leader in electric vehicles, with cumulative sales approaching 200,000 units. As part of its zero-emission strategy, the company announced in September that its best-selling all-electric Nissan LEAF will be available with a new, larger 30 kWh battery that delivers a more-than-20-percent-longer driving range between charges.
