Pathfinder, Infiniti JX help Nissan to avoid sales declining in January

Due to sales gains from the newly launched Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti JX crossovers, these two brands were able to avoid declining to below prior year volumes in January 2013. The company said that the Nissan Division experienced a 2% boost for January, with sales of 73,793 cars and trucks, making it 1,276 units higher than the sales in January 2012.

With this record, the Nissan Division sets an all-time January record, with the redesigned Pathfinder having a major contribution. Of the Nissan Division’s monthly volume, 6,281 units were of this model. It is 4,200 units higher than the previous year. Infiniti sales increased by 5% to 7,126 vehicles compared to the previous year. Of this figure, 1,970 units sold were of the JX crossover, which had its launch last March.

Al Castignetti, Nissan Division vice president for sales and marketing, said that Nissan had a “real nice start to 2013.” However, he said that in comparison to rivals, he would have wanted it to be a bit higher. The Pathfinder is one of a group of redesigned products that Nissan is changing over, which include the Altima and Sentra. Sentra sales increased by 27% as the redesigned model started to enter the dealership’s inventories.

Infiniti has developed technology for the JX that helps the driver to detect crossing vehicles and objects behind the JX when the transmission is in reverse. It is dubbed the Backup Collision Intervention system, which is the newest among the numerous advanced safety and security systems that Infiniti has brought to the market in the last few years.

Retailers will begin to sell the Infiniti JX nationwide this spring. If a collision is probable, this system could instantly activate the brakes.

Infiniti’s “Power of 7″ media campaign aims to raise the hype for the new seven-seat crossover that’s set to officially debut at the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 18. Infiniti is planning to release JX images every Thursday through its Facebook and Twitter accounts before its formal unveiling.

Previewed by an exterior sketch, the new car continues the firm’s styling theme seen on the Essence Concept.

“The all-new Infiniti JX crossover will allow us to continue to expand the Infiniti brand’s presence in the Americas,” said Carlos Tavares, chairman, Nissan Americas. “In 2010, Infiniti was one of the fastest-growing luxury brands in the United States, and this year we will expand our presence further to Mexico and Panama, followed by Chile in the first half of 2012.”

Apparently, the Infiniti JX was created as a 7-passenger antidote to the ho-hum luxury crossovers that are out there and the car promises to offer a stunning interior, easy access to the roomy third row, plus the latest in-vehicle technology such as next-generation telematics.

As part of Nissan Motor Co.’s new goal to lessen its exposure to the yen, the Infiniti JX crossover, its new seven-passenger model revealed earlier this week, will be produced in its assembly plant in Smyrna, Tenn., Nissan Americas’ chairman disclosed this morning. Carlos Tavares seeks to reduce the exposure of Nissan and Infiniti products to Japan’s rising yen and instead to use dollars.

However, this goal will require Nissan to shift some of its products around. In addition, Tavares also aims to buy its components generally from North American suppliers.

The company’s Smyrna plant already had a full plate of cars to manufacture, and the JX will be the third new product planned for the facility.
