Infiniti Sales Moving Upwards
Nissan Motor Co.’s premium Infiniti brand will likely end 2016 with record sales well beyond the 215,000 vehicles it sold worldwide last year, the brand’s global chief said.
Infiniti said this week that global sales reached 20,050 cars in November, a rise of 5% from the same period a year prior. Sales totaled about 204,000 in January-November, up 6%.
Infiniti sold 12,112 vehicles in the United States in November, a 4% increase from the same period a year earlier. For January-November, U.S. sales reached 120,095 vehicles, a rise of 1.4%.
In China, the brand sold over 4,000 vehicles in November, up 6%, with January-November sales growing 3% to nearly 37,000 vehicles. During the first 11 months of 2016, Infiniti also sold over 15,200 vehicles in western Europe, up 143% from the same period last year. It attributed the growth to the Q30 sedan and QX30 subcompact crossover.
