Infiniti logged a 20-percent year-on-year jump in global sales in October 2015, selling over 18,400 vehicles in the month. The year-on-year sales surge of over 3,000 units also marked Infiniti’s 14th record month in a row.
Likewise, last month was the best October to date in terms of sales. Contributing greatly to the carmaker’s global feat are its sales performances in key regions and markets.
In fact, October 2015 was the best sales month for Canada and the best October to date for several regions and markets like the Americas, China, Mexico, Western Europe. In the first 10 months of 2015, Infiniti posted a 16-percent jump in year-on-year sales to nearly 173,000 vehicles (up around 24,300 vehicles).
Interestingly, January-October 2015 sales in mainland China and Taiwan have already topped the full-year sales in 2014. In the Americas, meanwhile, the region achieved its highest 10-month sales since 2005. Infiniti Americas – covering the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Latin America -- sold 13-percent more vehicles year-on-year in the period to about 118,400 vehicles.
Additionally, the region posted a 23-percent jump in year-on-year sales in October to over 12,600 vehicles (plus around 2,300 vehicles). In the US, Infiniti sold over 11,100 vehicles last month for its second-best October.
Moreover, the brand sold 14-percent more vehicles in January to October to more than 106,700 vehicles, making it the second-best 10-month period since 2005. Across the globe in China, the auto market is struggling. But not Infiniti. In fact, Infiniti posted a 29-percent surge in year-on-year sales in October 2015 to over 3,700 vehicles.
Growth was more positive in the first 10 months of 2015, during which the luxury brand logged a 36-percent increase in sales to 32,200 vehicles. In the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, Infiniti sold three-percent more vehicles in October 2015 to about 1,700 vehicles.
The brand also sold eight-percent more vehicles in the first 10 months of 2015 to around 18,200 vehicles (plus 1,400 units). Roland Krueger, President of Infiniti Motor Company Limited, remarked that Infiniti’s strong sales momentum was propelled by its product portfolio, the brand and its dealer network.
He added that the carmaker expects to further increase its market presence with the upcoming launch of the new Q30 Active Compact.
