Article by Christian A., on November 26, 2010

For the month of October, Nissan’s global production rose to 363,227 units, an 11.6% increase when compared to October 2009 -- an all time record for October. As Japan’s government subsidy program for environmentally friendly vehicles is about to end, production has decreased by 12% year-on year to 87,215 units.

Meanwhile, production outside Japan has increased by 21.9% to 276,012 units. Production in the US has increased 1.4% year-on-year to 47,280 units while production in Mexico rose by 27% to 52,276 units because of the rise in demand for all models, especially the Tiida.

UK production increased 1.7% year-on year to 40,355 units. Spain’s production increased 97.3% from October 2009 to 11,178 units. And in China, production rose by 17.0% year-on-year to 84,686 units. In other regions, production was up 92.5% year-on-year to 40,237 units.

Another record for the month of October was set in the global sales of Nissan products. It also got an 11.4% increase compared to the same month from last year to 319,330 units.

Japan sales had gone down to 33,626 vehicles, including mini-vehicles, a 24.1% drop from the same period last year. Because of the termination of the government subsidy for eco-friendly cars, the overall vehicle registrations in Japan had fallen by 30.6% year-on-year to 25,369 units.

Sales outside Japan went up to 285,704, a 17.9% increase over the same month in 2009 -- an all-time record for October. Nissan's exports also increased 12.4% year-on-year to 63,749 units.

In particular, exports to North America rose by 27.4% to 39,560 units, because of the rise in demand for the new Juke, Infiniti G series and Rogue. Exports to Europe rose by 17.6% to 5,935 units, compared to October 2009. This is attributed to the rise in demand for models aimed at the Russian market.
