Article by Anita Panait, on February 10, 2014

Alliance partners Renault and Nissan logged a combined 2-percent surge in global vehicle sales to 8.27 million units in 2013, marking an all-time high for the carmakers. "Strong demand in the world's top markets more than offset anemic growth and declines elsewhere," Renault-Nissan chief executive Carlos Ghosn said in a statement.

"We will always experience periods of regional instability, but we remain bullish: The auto industry is a long-term growth story." Nissan by itself posted a 3-percent surge in global sales to 5.1 million vehicles.

The Japanese carmaker also logged a 17-percent rise in sales in China to 1.27 million units, giving it a market share of nearly 6 percent. Nissan and its luxury brand Infiniti logged a 9-percent climb in sales in the United States to 1.25 million units, good for an 8-percent market share.

Renault group, including the Dacia brand, posted a 3-percent jump in sales to 2.63 million units. Renault’s European sales grew 2.4 percent to 1.3 million, allowing it to increase its market share in the region by 0.4 percentage points to 9.5 percent.

Renault-Nissan’s 8.27 million global deliveries include sales of Russian unit AvtoVAZ, which sold 534,911 vehicles globally, for a 12-percent drop in sales. Renault-Nissan also disclosed a 52-percent jump in combined electric vehicle sales to 66,809 units. Sales of the Nissan Leaf surged 77 percent to 47,716 units, while sales of Renault's four EVs -- the Kangoo Z.E., Fluence Z.E., Zoe and Twizy – climbed 13 percent to 19,093.
